NIOT to build Indias first offshore desalination plant near Chennai coast
15 November 2017 Current Affairs: National Institute of Ocean Technology (NIOT) Satheesh C Shenoy scientists from NIOT will build India’s first offshore desalination plant about 40km from the Chennai coast.

This desalination plant is estimated to cost Rs. 2,000 crore. It will be designed and built by NIOT scientists off the shores of Ennore.

The capacity of the plant will be 10 million liters of water per day.

The technology is based on the temperature difference in seawater at different depths.
