The construction of a demineralized water station for drinking and technical water in Iran worth about $180 million is now in question due to the refusal of the Russian-Middle Eastern Export Center to participate in the project, RIA Novosti news agency reported on Thursday.
As a reference, the Russian-Middle Eastern Export Center was established in 2016 by the son of Russia's Prosecutor General, Igor Chaika, and Chairman of the Presidium of the Green Alternative movement, Oleg Mitvol. It is reported that the reason for the decision to abandon the project was the resumption of sanctions against Iran by Washington, something that complicated the equipment’s delivery to the country. Also, the cost of construction in comparison with the prices of two years ago had a negative impact.
The enterprise in Iran was planned to produce about 200,000 cubic meters of purified drinking and technical water per day for the use in Iranian state institutions and agriculture.
