The paper describes Metropolitan's $30 million demonstration program to develop a 75 million-gallon-per-day (mgd) seawater desalination plant coupled to a combined cycle steam turbine coastal power generating plant that produces water at $600 per acre foot. The plant is a multi-effect distillation process incorporating a thirty-effect, vertically stacked evaporator in a concrete pressure vessel using vertical aluminum double-fluted bundles.
