THE WATER LIFTING PLANT
by Michele Leonardi architect © July 2019
Water Lifting Plan uses the Archimedean screws pumps to lift the water.
1) It's powered by a nearby oasis with an electricity production plant (photovoltaic, gas, or oil).
2) It's equipped with accumulation and compensation tanks connected in series; everything is covered, away from the sun, in order to keep the sea water temperature low, before the final use.
3) The water lifting plant has a large open-air emergency basin by means of a breather. This is to avoid contaminating the desert aquifer in case of problems, maintenance, etc.
