The facility in the Gulf of Aden will have initial capacity of 22,500 m3/d with the potential to rise to 45,000 m3/d, and will supply the city of Dijbouti.

The contract is for design, construction, and operation of the plant, a pumping station to transfer drinking water to the city’s distribution network, and a wastewater and sludge treatment facility.

The project is backed by the European Union, with the original tender issued in 2014. The total cost is reportedly €46 million.
