Abdulmonem Ali Elhassadi, Chairman of General Desalination Company of Libya (GDCOL)
GDCOL currently provides less than 20% of the water supply in Libya as the main resource in the country is the Man-Made River. Mr Elhassadi hopes that Libya will concentrate on desalination rather than ground water in the future to come. The strategy of GDCOL is to have a desalination river; if there is a desalination plant at almost every 50km or every 100km, then they can connect them all and thus create a desalination river, a dream of Mr Elhassadi.

We also must consider that Libya in general will have increased demand. I consider Libya a virgin country in terms of infrastructure, and so we need a lot of projects.
