A first large-scale seawater desalination water plant to be built in Senegal

A 137 billion FCFA (210 million euros) first large-scale Mamelles seawater desalination plant in Dakar will begin with an aim to provide a safe and stable water supply to the people of the West African country through ensuring a highly sustainable water source.

Scheduled to be completed in 2025, the plant will have a capacity of 100,000 m3/day and the plant’s commissioning, along with the renewal of 316 kilometres of a mainly dilapidated distribution network, will have a beneficial impact on a total of 16 municipalities

This complex and unique project signifies a major milestone in the realization of the Emerging Senegal Plan (PSE), a massive program that is expected to put “this impoverished country” on the road to emergence by 2035.The project, developed by Société Nationale Des Eaux du Sénégal (SONES), will be carried out by Toyota Tsusho Corporation (“Toyota Tsusho”) together with major French construction company Eiffage Génie Civil (“Eiffage”) and major Indian water engineering company VA Tech Wabag (“Wabag”).
