The team sent by the supreme religious authority to the province of Basra to follow up the problem of water and work to find radical solutions to it, is still working according to the plan set by it. The al-Abbas's (p) Holy Shrine contributes to reduce this problem, through the establishment of a water desalination system (RO station) in the Shatt al-Arab district, in the area of Muhaila in particular, which was suffering due to lack and pollution of water.
The supervisor of these works and the head of the engineering projects department at the al-Abbas's (p) holy shrine, Eng. Diaa Majeed al-Sa'egh, briefed the Al-Kafeel Global Network on the importance of this station. He said: "The al-Abbas's (p) holy shrine has ensured three important joints in the work done by the technical team sent by the supreme religious authority to follow up and find solutions, including the establishment of this desalination plant in the area of Muhailah in the Shatt al-Arab, where we rented a land of (1000 m 2) on which we built this project."
He added: "The project consists of a RO station with a capacity of 30,000 liters per hour. It has an international origin (Italian-made pumps, American-made membranes, Indian filters, Swiss-made electric control panel and other parts of different origins) In addition to the installation of water reservoirs, a number of them were allocated to collect raw water before desalination and another for drinking water (RO). "
"The project has been provided with an exhaust pump system and many other subsystems, taking into consideration any future developments in terms of equipment or origin. The concrete foundations of the project have been increased, thus making it bearable any future development. And this was taken into consideration by the body designing the project; namely the al-Kafeel Center for Studies, and the executing company Iraqi Snowbird. "
Al-Sa'egh said: "It has been confirmed that the completed works are matching the approved designs, in addition to ensuring that the materials included in the construction are conform to laboratory tests and quality control."
