The LTTD technology was also demonstrated using waste heat from the North Chennai Power Plant and produced fresh water. The capacity of the plant is 1 lakh liter per day (lpd). A LTTD barge-mounted plant of 1 million litre per day was successfully demonstrated off Chennai (Tamilnadu) in April, 2007. The Kavaratti plant has been working since May 2005. Besides, 2 more desalination plants of 1 lakh liter capactity, one each at Minicoy and Agatti of the Lakshadweep Islands, have been set up. Currently, Public-Private Partnerships are being explored for further development of the technology for up-scaling to capacities of the order of 10 million lpd offshore plant.
