Video Webinar on DESALINATION IN INDIA
For delegate registration & sponsorship opportunities, please contact
The potential of desalination of seawater and brackish water to meet the growing municipal and industrial requirements is slowly being realised. Industries such as thermal power plants and oil refineries are setting up large-scale desalination plants to meet their water requirements efficiently. At least 325 mld of desalination capacity is being set up for industrial use. On the municipal front, Tamil Nadu and Gujarat have witnessed a tremendous increase in desalination demand. At least 940 mld of desalination capacity will be added over the next three to four years in the municipal segment. Private sector participation in the desalination market has increased in the last one decade or
so. Advanced technologies and equipment are being deployed to reduce the high energy costs associated with desalination. Over the next three to four years, vast amounts of investments will be required to set up the planned desalination projects, thus presenting significant opportunities to key stakeholders.
In this context, Indian Infrastructure is organising a webinar to understand the progress and plans for desalination projects, highlight emerging technology trends and advancements, discuss the key issues, challenges and potential strategies being considered to fast-track implementation, and identify the new opportunities in the segment.
The webinar is targeted at key stakeholders in desalination segment featuring thermal power plants, oil refineries, state/municipal agencies, industrial users, project developers, desalination plant suppliers, water supply & sewage boards, technology and equipment providers, consultants, etc.
The webinar will feature a 70/75-minute moderated panel discussion among key stakeholders in the desalination segment featuring state/municipal agencies, industrial users, project developers, technology providers and a leading consultant.
The panel will address questions such as:
- What is the perspective of key stakeholders on the current state of the desalination market in India?
- What is the existing desalination capacity for municipal and industrial purposes? What are the future capacity expansion plans and requirements of states/local utilities and industries?
- How has been the experience of project developers/contractors in the desalination segment? What has been the trend in the capex of desalination plants?
- What have been the notable trends and advancements on the technology front?
- What has been the impact of Covid-19 on project delivery? What are the key strategies being considered to fast-track project implementation?
- What are the biggest issues and challenges?
