A Hyper Station for Produce Power Electricity and a Desalination of the Sea Water : the Gaza Strip Case

Alaa MA Musalam


This study investigates how renewable energy resources may well remedy the problems that stem from the shortages in electricity power supply using the Gaza strip as a particular case study. In an attempt to address this research’s nature is purely experimental, using the existing laboratory at the College of Science and Technology, City of K/Younis, Gaza Strip. A particular finding emerges in this study which argues for water energy being important because it may well substitute the shortages in energy power supply in developing countries.

A hyper station is invented in this study. The aim is not only to produce power electricity from sea water in Gaza, or reduce the cost of energy production but also a desalination of the sea water is achieved. The results of the energy generated by the turbine nearly 70 to 120 MW dependent on the production of drinking water from the desalination process .Possible to build another stations to increase production if that necessary.
