Every year & Due to global warming, many icebergs disintegrate from Antarctica and then they float on the ocean until they melt wasting billions & billions of gallons of the world’s most important substance (fresh water) and causing the sea level to rise; So why not take advantage of what little the nature can offer us.
Currently R & D is on the final stage of developing a unique technology to harvest icebergs and deliver them to nations around the world with a more competitive pricing in comparison to desalination.
It’s expected to start the trial run by second quarter of 2019 & to the eastern coast of UAE by the end of 2019.
