    Expected Impact on the Dead Sea (WB)

  • As A follow-up on the WB Study The Regional Countries are in agreement to start the implementation of an initial phase to

    fulfil the concept of:

    Rapid initiation of RSDS Regional Project with

    Initial Phase I, and it will serve as a pilot phase.

    Initiating the infrastructure elements of all

    subsequent project phases

  •  Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) has been signed on Dec 9, 2013 between Jordan, the Palestinian Authority, and Israel at the World Bank in Washington DC, in which all parties agreed to start the implementation of the first phase of the RSDS project on BoT basis.  Following up on this MoU, bi-lateral agreements will be signed between Jordan and Israel and Palestinian Authority and Israel soon;  This project RSDS-Phase I (Red Sea Desalination Project at Aqaba) is a result of a joint initiative to promote regional cooperation among Israel, Jordan and the Palestinian Authority (the Beneficiary Parties).

  •  Treatment and Desalination Plant (80-100) mcm/yr

     Freshwater Booster Pump Station to Aqaba (2 pumps -300 m and 2-50 m pumps)

     Freshwater Conveyance (4 km of 1.2 m Pipeline to Border) (17.0 km of 0.8 to 1.0 m Pipeline to Aqaba)

     Seawater Conveyance (2km of 3.7 m pipeline and 22 km of 2.2 m Pipeline)

     Seawater Intake Pump Station (pumps- 50m VT pumps; 4,500 HP motors)

     Intake Structure (178 to 222 mcm/yr) with Max Capacity 700 mcm/yr

    Red Sea

    Aqaba

  •  Desalination Brine Conveyance (200 km of 1.4 to 1.8m Pipeline)

     Desalination Brine Pressure Regulation (3-Pressure Reducing Stations;

    With the potential to be replaced by Hydropower Generation Stations

     1- (Reservoir) at high point

     Two desalination Brine Booster Pump Station
