Capacity: 120 million m3/year

An  award-winning,  milestone  plant  for  the desalination industry.

When  completed,  Ashkelon was by far the world’s largest and most advanced desalination  plant, with a huge capacity  of  up to  330,000  m3/day  and with extremely high efficiency  levels, the Ashkelon plant achieved one of the world’s lowest ever prices  for desalinated water.

In  2010, due to the unmatched  success of the  plant, it  was expanded by nearly  20% to  392,000 m3/day, providing   clean  water  for   more  than   a    million people.

The plant  sets  a   new  benchmark  for  low  cost  of desalinated  water  and  was the  first  to  use IDE’s proprietary   Pressure   Center   Design,   Triple   Line Intake, ERS  {Energy Recovery System) and a  unique, patented Boron Removal System for increased efficiency and significantly reduced water costs.

The  plant   got   a      Global    recognition   by  GWl’s “Desalination Plant of the Year” award in 2006.

Project type: Build-Operate-Transfer (BOT)- 25 years
