Turkmenbashi Desalination Plant
Turkmenbashi – 2010
Located on the eastern coast of the Caspian Sea, the facility has a production capacity of 35,000 m3/day of fresh water from 70,000 m3/day of sea water, using reverse osmosis technology. The water is brought from 1.2 km offshore, from a depth of approximately six or seven meters, through polyethylene pipes 2x1000 mm in diameter. This water then undergoes a purification process at the reverse osmosis facilities, which include three units with a capacity of 10,000 m3 and one unit with a capacity of 5,000 m3. Thanks to membrane technologies, these facilities can maintain the dissolved salt in the seawater at a rate of 99%, and can operate separately or simultaneously, depending on the level of water required.
The project includes material storage, an administrative building and a laboratory, as well as a 22,900-meter pipeline installation and eight water storage tanks with varying capacities that provide services to various accommodation points.
