Desalination, which is not susceptible to the impact of climate change, is a strategic water resource to cope with the rising demand on freshwater due to population and economic growth in Hong Kong. Water Supplies Department has been exploring the latest development in desalination technology and actively looking for the best alternative to produce potable water in Hong Kong. Tseung Kwan O Desalination Plant will adopt reverse osmosis technology, with a water production capacity of about 135,000 cubic metres (m3) per day, The plant is also designed for future expansion to the ultimate water production capacity up to 270,000m3 per day when necessary which will cater for 5% to 10% of the overall fresh water demand in Hong Kong. The first stage of the plant will be implemented under a Design-Build-Operate contract arrangement.

A presentation will be given to the participants on the project introduction and highlights, followed by a guided tour of the site to understand the site overview and daily operation.
