Construction has started on a desalination plant in Morocco that will use ultrafiltation (UF) and reverse osmosis (RO) membranes to produce 100,000 m3/day.

The National Power and Drinking Water Office (ONEE) has contracted Spanish firm Abengoa to construct the plant, located 45 km from the city of Agadir.

Financed by €82 million from banks led by Banque Marocaine du Commerce Extérieur, the project will be developed under a public-private partnership (PPP) system, the first for ONEE.

Set to provide water for 500,000 people, the plant's capacity may be increased by an additional 100,000 m3/day of drinking water, Abengoa said in a statement.
