Hormuz desalination plant


Hormuz Island is like a mussel among Persian Gulf see. The Island covers an area of 41 square kilometers and is located within 18 Km. southeast of Bandar Abbas, the capital of Hormozgan province. Politically Hormuz is considered part of Qeshm city. Hormuz population is of over five thousand people.
This Island is formed of layers of sedimentary and volcanic. It is interesting to know that level of salt in the salt dunes covers much of the island. The temperature in summer is 〖40〗^0 C above zero and rainfall varies between 30 and 200 mm. Relative humidity of the Island is between 30 and 100 percent.
There is no pasture and vegetation on the island due to low rainfall, saline soil and brackish water.
The Island’s drinking water was supplied by wells, though it would float on water transport from Bandar Abbas to Hormuz due to low rainfall and drought in the past. Lack of safe water for all led to inaccessibility of it and that was the reason why South Raadab Eng. Co. established a desalination plant in Hormuz in 2009. Technology used is RO which produces 1875 m^3/d potable water and it is ended to water shortage of the Island
