British company Biwater is presenting to Peru’s Private Investment Promotion Agency (ProInversion) a desalination plant project, to support the treatment, supply and storage of drinking water in southern Lima by 2011.

The project, which includes the construction of a reverse osmosis seawater desalination in the district of Santa Maria del Mar, will also benefit the districts of Pucusana and Lurin.

Biwater is also interested in developing the Northern Lima Optimization project, with a project that has already been presented to Lima’s water company (Sedapal).

The company is also expecting for an opportunity to develop drinking water and sanitation projects in Arequipa and Piura too.
