India - Water Infrastructure - Indo-Japan Collaboration - Hitachi Consortium signed Water Purchase Agreement for Seawater Desalination Project in Dahej SEZ, Gujarat, India

Japanese firm Hitachi, on Friday, announced that a consortium comprising Hitachi and Hyflux had signed an agreement with Dahej Special Economic Zone (SEZ) for a sea-water desalination project in Gujarat.


The consortium signed a water purchase agreement with Dahej Special Economic Zone in Gujarat, Hitachi Ltd said in a statement issued here.

The consortium plans to construct a sea water desalination plant in an industrial park within Dahej SEZ, and provide a stable supply of industrial water over a period of 30 years (including the construction period). “Hitachi will work closely with Hyflux to successfully implement the project, in order to facilitate the use of water resources in Dahej SEZ in Gujarat,” Hitachi president Hiroaki Nakanishi said.

The project involves construction of a 336,000 m³/d seawater desalination plant in an industrial park within Dahej SEZ in Gujarat and stable supply of industrial water over a period of 30 years (including the construction period).

It is one of the Delhi-Mumbai Industrial Corridor Projects being promoted jointly by the Japanese and Indian governments, involving the construction of industrial parks between Delhi and Mumbai (approximately 1,500 km) utilizing private sector capital.

The consortium will conduct discussions toward the final agreement with DSL planned for around fall 2013, after obtaining environmental assessment approval and achieving the financial close.
