The success of current activities to develop the Makran coasts depends on the provision of primary infrastructures including fresh water, electricity, etc. Such infrastructures have significant importance in the densely populated region in the south of Sistan and Baluchistan province. Accordingly, the project for the construction of desalination system is at the top of Chabahar Free Zone Organization agenda and by implementing the intended project, a significant portion of the needs of the industries and residents of the region is met for safe water. The production of potable water from the sea by Reverse Osmosis (RO) is one of the most cost-effective methods of supplying drinking water in the world.

It is worth mentioning that the only desalination Complex in Chabahar and Conarak area with a nominal capacity of 35,000 cubic meters is in operation 24 hours a day.
