Capacity: 150 million m3/year
Sorek sets significant new benchmarks in both desalination capacity and water cost.
It provides: 624,000 m3/day of clean potable water for over 1.2 million people, comprising 20% of the municipal water demand in Israel thus alleviating the country’s potable water shortage.
The project was recognized as a Pioneering Milestone Project – The world’s largest and most advanced SWRO plant while set a new benchmark for low cost of desalinated water in BOT projects.
The plant is characterized by an Innovative design incorporating vertical arrangement of 16″ membranes in a large scale facility, resulting in reduced footprint. The use of IDE’s proprietary Pressure Center Design resulting in high efficiency, reduced energy consumption and lower costs.
Outstanding environmental responsibility with Minimized marine / shoreline / land impacts thanks to smart structural design, pipe-jacking method, and reduced electrical and chemical consumption.
Project type: Build-Operate-Transfer (BOT)•
