This research is focused on the economic feasibility of using multi-effect evaporators (MEV) for the production of potable water, for the city of Port Sudan, the main port of Sudan. Port Sudan city suffers from chronic shortage of potable water. The study has shown that five effect evaporator plant in Port Sudan can produce 1.41*106 m3/year at a unit cost of 5$/m3 with a pay-back period of 7 years. A simulation of the MEV has been performed using Aspen Hysys (version 7.3) and produced results were very much similar to these obtained manually.
