Desalination for Water Supply and Design-Build-Operate Contract

11
07 December 2017
ADB is developing a 24 MLD desalination plant for water supply provision in the Jaffna peninsula, Sri Lanka through a design-build-operate (DBO) contract. This is the first large-scale desalination plant for drinking water supply financed by ADB, and serves as a good case for DBO application to attract top leading players.  Both DBO and the desalination systems are the trend for future projects' procurement processes and water supply investments.
 
This one-day workshop will serve as a platform to share the experiences and the lessons learnt during the project development process. It will help participants learn more about the desalination technology, including how to prepare and where to get help for such projects and approaches. A knowledge product will be developed after the workshop.
