Desalination Plant Operational by 2027-2028

The focus lies on the anticipated desalination plant in Axarquía, expected to be operational by 2027 or 2028. While the start date for construction remains uncertain, efforts will also involve boosting existing desalination capacities and exploring water transport by ship.

Water Transport by Ship as a Contingency

Ribera clarified that the complex approval process influences the desalination project’s timeline, making 2027-2028 more realistic. The collaboration includes urgent measures like reactivating hydraulic projects, advancing pending desalination initiatives, and considering water sources outside Andalusia. President Moreno emphasized preparedness, revealing plans for water transport via ships as a last resort. The government’s plan to evaluate these measures regularly, demonstrates a united front to address water scarcity in the region.
