Turkey-N. Cyprus water pipeline project starts off
Turkey-N. Cyprus water pipeline project starts off

Turkey-TRNC water pipeline project will meet 50 years of the water need of the island.

Water pipeline project construction to link Turkey and Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus (TRNC) has begun.

The project envisaging the transfer of water from a dam which will be built on Turkish side, is estimated to cost 782.5 million TL.

The pipelines will transfer water through a special method which will be applied for the first time in the world, as the pressure level in the deep-sea prevents the transfer of water through the pipes.

The 80,151 meter-long pipeline will not transfer the water through channels in the deep-sea, but through the hangers only in 250-meter under the sea.

The 75 million cubic meters of water will meet TRNC's 50 years of water need.

While 50.3 percent of the water will be used for drinking, the rest will be used for irrigation.

TRNC lacks water due to the nonexistence of adequate underground and surface water resources.
