Phase 1 of the PENANG DESALINATION WATER SUPPLY SCHEME (PDWSS): 250 MLD
This proposal involves the construction of a sea water desalination facility in the southern area of Penang Island. Its purpose is to address the increasing water supply needs in Balik Pulau and the surrounding areas, as well as for the Penang South Reclamation (PSR) project towards 2030. The first phase of this scheme should be commissioned in December 2024. Since Penang is (like Singapore) surrounded by sea, it has theoretically unlimited access to sea water for desalination.
