Orano Erongo Desalination Plant opens

Water scarcity continues to be a challenge in some parts of the Erongo Region, and Governor Neville Andre has urged the Orano Erongo Desalination Plant to work shoulder-to-shoulder with the government to help fight the water crisis in rural areas of the region.


Andre said this during the opening of the visitor centre at the Erongo Desalination Plant, 35 kilometres outside Swakopmund.


Neville Andre says there's nothing more essential to life on earth than water. Yet there's a global water crisis.
