Facing deteriorating and underfunded water infrastructure, central Asian country Kazakhstan is looking to desalinate the Caspian Sea as an answer to its water woes.
A memorandum of understanding (MoU) has been signed between Veolia Water Solutions & Technologies and Kazyna Capital Management to address how private sector participation can help to deliver a 125,000 m3/day project.
Although landlocked by Russia, China, Kyrgyzstan and Uzbekistan, the south west part of the country runs alongside the Caspian Sea.
To be located in Aktau, the proposed plant will supply water to industries and the population of Aktau and Zhanaozen, the two main cities in the oil province of the Manghystau.
Veolia will work with the Kazakhstan Public-Private Partnership (PPP) Centre to start work on the project.
