Three major shipping ports on the Bay of Bengal have been instructed by India's Ministry of Shipping to install desalination plants

The ports, which run north to south down India’s east coast, have been directed by India’s Minister for Shipping and Water, Shri Gadkari, to introduce containerised reverse osmosis facilities of around 13,000 m3/d.

The new water supplies are expected to provide domestic drinking water supplies to nearby areas, as well as to support the port and related industries.

The order came at a meeting of port chairmen convened by Gadkari.
