Bhuj, July 5 (UNI) A Rs 600 crore desalination plant will be set up in Kutch to cater to the water needs of industries which have been comissioned after the earthquake.

This will be the first plant of its kind in the country.

The project will be a public-private partnership and a special company would be formed to implement it, sources said.

A decision to this effect was taken last week in a high-level meeting which was attended by government officials, Gujarat Water Supply and Sewerage Board officials and representatives of the industry.

The capacity of the plant, its location and other technical details are being worked out, sources said.

The proposed plant would have the capacity to convert 150 million litres of sea water into sweet water per day, which would flow through the present Narmada pipeline to industries in Kutch.

Several new industries have come up in Kutch, in the wake of a series of tax concessions granted by both the Centre and the Gujarat government.

They are now fulfilling their water requirements through undergound water sources.
