Salt water filtration systems installed in the island of Song Tu Tay, off the central coastal province of Khanh Hoa, have proven effective in bringing fresh water to local islanders.

As part of a clean energy project for Truong Sa (Spratly) Archipelago and the DK platform, the pilot project aims to install reverse osmosis (RO) technology-applied sea water desalination systems using solar, water and wind energy, meeting international quality standards.

Invested by the Navy High Command, the project was funded by the National Oil and Gas Group and was implemented by the Back Khoa Solar Investment JSC (SolarBK) and the Electronic, Informatics and Chemical JSC.

At present, the filter systems generate a total volume of 18,000 litres each day, helping 100 percent of inhabitants and soldiers living in Song Tu Tay to enjoy fresh water.

Previously, fresh water was scarce in the island, mostly transported from the mainland.

The project, which will be expanded to islands and platforms in Truong Sa Archipelago, also plays an important role improving the environment.-VNA
