Turn-Key Seawater Desalination Plant in Cape Verde (2 x 5.000 m³/day)
Praia with approximate 140.000 inhabitants is Cape Verde's capital, largest city and a commercial centre.
The development of the urban infrastructure of Praia has made a big progress in the last years. It concerns the extension of the street network, construction of the new residential buildings, renovation of the old ones as well as construction of the new airport and extension of the university.
However, this progress is hindered by the scarcity of the high-quality water, which is a big problem in Cape Verde. The city features an arid climate with a short and a lengthy, very pronounced dry season.
