No. of Pages: 63

As of the end of 2011, China’s seawater desalination capacity reached 660 kilotons per day, and the figure, as scheduled, will hit 2.2-2.6 million tons per day in 2015.

In recent years, world’s renowned corporations in the water treatment engineering field have sped up their inrush to Chinese seawater desalination market.

  • Veolia Water entered Chinese water treatment market early in 1997, now with over 15 projects in China, mainly in Tianjin, Shanghai, Beijing, Shandong, Shaanxi, etc.;
  • ProMinent stepped into seawater desalination market of China in 2001, now with more than six built-up seawater desalination projects there.
  • Israel Desalination Enterprises (IDE) Technologies tapped into Chinese seawater desalination market in 2007, and it has already constructed one seawater desalination project in Tianjin.
  • Hyflux accessed Chinese market in 2009, and has set up Tianjin Dagang Seawater Desalination Plant.
  • Aqualyng began the construction of seawater desalination project in China since 2010, now owning one seawater desalination project in Tangshan, Hebei.

Compared with foreign counterparts, Chinese seawater desalination engineering companies seem weaker. Although China Shipbuilding Industry Corporation, ZhongHe Seawater Desalination Engineering Co., Ltd., Wuhan Kaidi Water Service Co., Ltd, etc. are making unrelenting efforts in market exploitation, while with respect to key, large-scale seawater desalination project, international giants’ participation in construction still needs to be recommended for the time being.

In terms of seawater desalination equipment, it mainly relies on the supply of international giants. Reverse osmosis membrane, for example, saw its market share merely rise from 3% in 2005 to around 15% in 2010 although domestic Chinese companies have experienced rapid growth for the past few year.
