The first project is part of the five desalination plants which AWDEC plans to build as part of the proposed Saghi Kosar (SAKO) Desalination and Power Plant in Bandar Abbas, Iran. The SAKO Desalination and Power Plant will feature five desalination plants able to produce 1,000,000 cubic metres of water per day, and a 300 - 400 MW power plant.

It was valued at €68.7m ($109.6m), with an additional €10.5m ($16.75m) for optional add-ons such as equipment and technical advisors.

“When completed, the SAKO Desalination and Power Plant will address the growing domestic water scarcity in Iran and serve industries in the South East of Iran,” Hyflux said in a previous announcement.
