Morocco to Build 2nd Desalination Plant in Laayoune

Morocco will build a second desalination plant in its Saharan city of Laayoune to meet the water needs of the local inhabitants over the ten coming years.

The 600 L/s plant will be operation before end of 2021, announced lately Abderrahim Hafidi, Head of Morocco’s state-owned electricity & water facility (ONEEP) during the meeting of the board of directors of the Laayoune-Sakia El Hamra water basin agency.

As the population continues to grow in Laayoune, a wastewater treatment facility, with 18,000 m3/day capacity, will be constructed this year in this city to keep abreast with its socioeconomic development and expand green zones, added Hafidi.

In Dakhla, construction works of a wastewater treatment station will be launched very soon to meet the needs of the populations of the Dakhla-Oued Eddahab region, said the ONEEP chief.

These projects are among many others planned by the authorities across the North African kingdom. They show the importance Morocco grants to water resources and supply, using latest technologies to improve water management and expand sanitation networks to sustain families and livelihood.

On Monday, King Mohammed VI chaired in Rabat the signing ceremony of a €10.8 billion program to enhance the country’s resilience to global warming and ensure regular water supply over the next eight years.
