Cuba Promotes New Water Desalination Project

Havana, Oct 3 (Prensa Latina) Cuba is promoting a new project for water desalination through different techniques, including nuclear, which will be assessed in operation in several communities next year.

Engineer Anaely Saunders, Deputy director of Renewable Energy of Cubaenergia, a firm that promotes information technology and sustainable energy development, told Prensa Latina that two foreign firms, French Somec and Italian Pert, have offer plants to be used in pilot projects in Cuba.

“It is a phased project until year 2017 that has to be with the consequences of climate change, above all in coastal areas and those affected by desertification and drought,” explained Saunders during a seminar held in Havana, related to development and the efficient use of renewable energy sources.

According to Saunders, Cuban experts plan to incorporate these new plants to the use of renewable energy sources, as they are facilities with a given energy consumption, and the incorporation of photovoltaic and miniaeolian technologies contribute to prevent an increase in the use of fuel.

Some of the equipment that might be used by Cuba will be shocased during the upcoming Havana International Fair (FIHAV 2015), on Nov. 2-7.
