Algerian Desalination Market Developments

In the current market situation, where the financial crisis has frozen most project finance, Algeria maintains its commitments to develop a desalination infrastructure and continues to pursue a milestone program of desalination capacity building which sits among the most ambitious in industry history. By 2011, 13 seawater desalination projects with a total capacity of 2.26 million m /d will be developed in Algeria, contributing to what is probably one of the largest growths in national capacity in recent years. After the planned completion of the desalination program by 2011, the newly installed seawater desalination facilities will contribute about 70 L per capita per day to the drinking water supply of the densely populated coastal strip along the Mediterranean, where more than 90 % of Algeria’s population lives.
