Iran Launches Five Projects To Transfer Desalinated Water


The Iranian president on Sunday inaugurated five projects to transfer desalinated water from the Persian Gulf and the Sea of Oman to inland arid provinces.

President Hassan Rouhani opened the five water transfer projects via videoconference on Sunday.

New pipelines supply desalinated water from the southern coasts to desert areas and industrial plants in several provinces, including Hormozgan, Kerman, Yazd, Isfahan, South Khorasan, Khorasan Razavi, and Sistan and Balouchestan.

Carried out by the private sector, the infrastructural projects provide employment for 54,000 people.

In comments at the inauguration ceremony, the president said a major revolution, not a simple leap, has happened in the country’s water sector under his administration.

In comments in November 2020, Rouhani said the administration has utilized the desalination technology on a large-scale across the country.

“Fortunately, the Ministry of Energy has been conducting feasibility studies in 17 provinces in the central plateau of Iran as well as in coastal areas of the Persian Gulf and the Sea of Oman,” he said.
