World’s Largest Desalination Plant Begins Operations in Israel

July 9, 2010
New plant relies on reverse osmosis technology

The world’s largest operational seawater reverse osmosis (SWRO) desalination plant was recently inaugurated in Israel. The plant, located on the Mediterranean coast of Israel in Hadera, 50 km north of Tel Aviv, is designed to supply about 20 percent of Israel’s domestic potable water requirement.

Constructed and operated by H2ID, a consortium of IDE Technologies and Shikun & Binui Housing and Construction, the Hadera plant is part of a desalination master plan to help address the chronic water resource problems in this region.

With more than 53,000 DOW FILMTEC reverse osmosis elements installed to produce up to 456,000 cubic meters of potable water per day from seawater (including the capacity extension of 88,000 cbm/d), Hadera is another milestone project for desalination in terms of size. Including the expansion, it currently has the largest installed SWRO capacity globally.
