Caption: Dhekelia, located on the southeast coast of Cyprus, is situated on the eastern Mediterranean Sea. In 1997, Caramondani Desalination Ltd., the plant's builder, owner and operator, undertook a BOOT (Build, Own, Operate and Transfer) contract for the original desalination facility to produce 40, 000 m3/day of fresh water. The plant used hollow-fiber membranes. It was the first large scale (10, 000 m3/day per train) to employ ERI PX technology which was implemented as a retrofit for the original Francis turbines energy recovery solution. Late last year, the Cyprus Desalination Plant initiated an upgrade of its desalination process to achieve a more scalable, more energy efficient operation. The new process which came on line in May 2007 still produces 40, 000m3/day of fresh water but consumes considerably less energy than it used to, supplying drinking water to approximately 200000 Cypriots.
