The new plant for desalination of sea water will be at the shores of the Caspian Sea, said the head of industrial-innovative development of Mangistau region (Kazakhstan) Nurbek Karassayev during a press conference at CCS, Caspian Energy News (www.caspianenergy.net) reports with reference to the official website of the Government of Kazakhstan.
"I cannot say anything regarding the power and the amount of investment. The investor has been just selected. This object is in charge of KazMunaiGas JSC. It will be implemented jointly with OzenMunayGaz JSC," N. Karassayev said.
According to him, KazMunaiGas has identified one of the three investors.
"The desalination plant should be located near the coast of the Caspian Sea, as it will dial out sea water for desalination, so it will be in Karakiyan district, Mangistau region. There will be running water delivered by water. Primarily for Ozenmunaygaz JSC needs and to the public, and to ensure a lack of fresh water," N. Karassayev concluded.
