EU aid for Djibouti desalination facility

(HornTrade) – Djibouti City: Djibouti’s government said it plans to build a 20-megawatt wind farm and a desalination plant within the next two years in a 20 billion-Djiboutian-franc (Dh415 million) project that will be financed by the European Union.

The power plant is expected to be completed by the end of 2013 and will power the water facility that is scheduled to be commissioned in 2014, Almis Mohammad Abdullah, head of external financing in the Economy, Finance, Industry and Planning Ministry, said after talks with an EU delegation on Wednesday in Djibouti City, the capital.

The desalination plant will produce 45,000 cubic metres of water per day, compared with the 36,000 cubic metres currently available.
