News Cyprus desalination plant gets underway

Plans for a further three desalination plants in Cyprus have got underway. Earlier this week the Athens Mesogios company started construction work on one of the plants in the Kouklia area of Paphos, which is a few miles to the south of the popular tourist destination.

The company has been given seven months to complete the work and the plant should deliver some 20,000 cubic metres of water a day to the local area.

The construction will cost €8.5 million and the Paphos Water Development Department expects to pay Mesogios €20 million for water over three years; customers will pay around €1.65/cu.m.
