Operations at phase four of the Barka Desalination Plant will be started partially to support water shortage during work on other parts of the plant.

According to an ONA report, Barka Water Desalination Plant is currently facing challenges due to intense phytoplankton in sea water.

Mohammed bin Abdullah al Mahrouqi, chairman of Oman’s Public Authority for Electricity and Water (Diam), visited the plant on Monday to discuss with plant managers the measures that can be taken to counter the effects of phytoplankton.

“They explored the possibility of production from Barka 4, which is still under construction. They agreed to immediately start the plant partially to support the water network while other water plants are not in service,” the ONA report said.

“Phase four of the plant is still under construction, and it is equipped with a system for eliminating phytoplankton,” the report added.
