Essar chose to partner with IDE and installed two highly energy-efficient Multi-Effect Distillation (MED) seawater desalination units. As a sign of a productive partnership, two further larger units were ordered in 2008, more than tripling the capacity. Essar and IDE’s desalination partnership proves that eco-awareness, operational innovation and cost savings can go hand in hand.
