It was opened by president Shimon Peres yesterday (May 16) and will remove salt from the water by applying pressure on one side of a selective membrane.
Chief executive of H2ID, Shmulik Shai, said the plant will supply water at the cost of $0.57/m³ and will demand 450GW of electricity each year.
He said: "As we take pride in the results of the Hadera plant, we rededicate ourselves to reach for new horizons in the Soreq plant we are now constructing."
The investment in the construction project, which totalled about $463M was funded by a consortium of international banks.
