Review of the desalinated water market in France for small units; Apercu sur le marche de l'eau dessalee en France pour de petites unites

Abstract

On the initiative of and in close collaboration with the Commissariat a l'Energie Atomique, the Societe pour la Conversion et le Developpement Industriel (SODIC) has carried out a very general study of the coastal regions of France in which the short, medium and long-term prospects of the demand for water, and the cost of the necessary supplies, could possibly make desalination units of 3 000 to 10 000 m3/day competitive. So far this general enquiry, which went into detail on some particular aspects, has not revealed any very clear possibilities in this respect, except in the case of the small islands, and of units of much lower capacity, as well as that of large units on the coast, which would benefit from the size effect. However the probable difference between the cost of desalinated water and the high selling price already applying in a small number of coastal regions is relatively small. It might therefore be worthwhile and relatively inexpensive to install an experimental desalination unit in the near future.

(author) [French] A l'initiative du Commissariat a l'Energie Atomique et en etroite liaison avec lui, la Societe pour la Conversion et le Developpement Industriel (SODIC) a effectue une etude tres generale des zones cotieres francaises dans lesquelles les perspectives de la demande d'eau a court, moyen et long terme et le cout des approvisionnements necessaires, pourraient eventuellement faire apparaitre comme competitives des unites de dessalement de 3 a 10 000 m{sup 3}/jour. Jusqu'ici, cette enquete generale, d'ailleurs approfondie sur quelques points particuliers, n'a pas fait apparaitre de possibilites tres nettes a cet egard. Le cas des petites iles, et pour des unites de bien plus faible capacite, demeure reserve ainsi que, sur les zones cotieres, celui de grandes unites qui beneficieraient de l'effet de taille. Toutefois, l'ecart probable entre le cout de l'eau dessalee et le prix de vente eleve deja observe dans un petit nombre de zones cotieres est relativement faible. Il pourrait donc etre interessant dans un proche avenir et relativement peu onereux de mettre en place une unite experimentale de dessalement. (auteur)}
