Korean ship Dongbang Jiant 3, which is carrying the world’s largest water desalination equipment to be installed at the water desalination plant in Yanbu has arrived at King Fahd Industrial Port (KFIP), Zawya has reported. The Yanbu plant along the same coast produces about 124 million cubic meters of water, and supplies it to Madinah, Yanbu and the surrounding areas. KFIP Director General Saleh Al-Haddad said: “The operational efficiency of the port and its capacity allows dealing with such giant cargo. At the same time, this unit is the second of the four units to be installed in the Yanbu desalination plant.” Saudi Arabia remains the world’s largest producer of desalinated water.
