Under the deal with the Iran-based Sazeh Sazan, the group will construct the facility over the next two years and also conduct operation and maintenance work for 12 years, according to Iran Daily.

The company said Monday that the deal marks the first SWRO procurement a foreign company clinched from Iran since international sanctions were lifted early this year.

The plant – dubbed SAKO SWRO plant – will be built at Bandar Abbas, capital of Hormozgan Province in Iran. It will desalinate around 200,000 tonnes of water a day, which would be supplied to mines in the region in annual capacity enough for 670,000 people after its construction is completed in October 2018.
