In 2009, Mekorot Development and Enterprise and its partners Logicom Ltd and Dimitra of Cyprus, won an international B.O.T. tender for the planning, funding, construction and operation of a seawater desalination plant in Limassol, Cyprus.  The project’s construction was completed in 2013, and the plant is ready to supply over 40,000 cubic meters of desalinated water per day for the Cyprus Water Authority.
In addition, the company won an international tender to upgrade and operate a desalination plant in Larnaca.  The plant will desalinate 20,000 cubic meters of seawater per day.  Through these two desalination plants, Mekorot will supply about 40% of Cyprus’ drinking water consumption and will solve its growing water shortage.
