Desalination plants are further from the sea where ever the threat of high waves is given. The pipeline to the plant, through which the seawater flows, goes downwards towards the plant. This drives a generator, which, together with solar panels, brings up the energy needed to desalinate. The saline is being cleaned and stored in facilities that you can see as a "grid" on the surface and the desalinated water rushes through underground pipes to where ever it is needed. The plant runs almost on its own. All that is needed is a little maintainance here and there and the trucks that transport the salt away through that entrance one can see. Its as simple as that...-

I agree that they are built a distance from the sea, however the distance these domes are from the sea would require either pumping stations along the way, or a VERY deep receiving port for the water. Pythagorean's theory is very much in play here. considering the great strides Dubai is taking to modernism their land it would be step backwards to build desalination plants that far from the ocean

As far as the grids being saline deposit areas, many of them have vegitative growth, which is not going to happen with salt present in the sand/soil

water tanks in the EAU desert with pictures

OP's pictures are far from this ones... really don't look like a water plant to me, not saying it s aliens or Doomsday Bunkers but i spent hours looking for the water plants programs in EAU and not one looked like what we're trying to guess...

Well, what is shown in this Link of yours, are mere old fashion water tanks...-
Of course they dont look like modern high tech desalination plants. They just look like what they actually are, ol' water tanks.

here is a link to the are where dubia has located its desalination plants

OK, I have followed this thread for a while. I really thought that ATS would very quickly provide the correct answer, but that does not appear to be the case in this instance. Don't despair, ATS is usually very quick to provide clear answers to most of the questions laid before it.

So here is my opportunity to contribute to the cause of understanding.

The US has had for a lot of years, pre-positioned equipment in that region. They used it during the gulf wars, and then returned it to storage.

Lots of Abrams stored where they might be needed...nuff said.

i agree

but the satellites image are from 2006


plus desalination plants should be close to sea, not in the middle of the desert

I'm not too inclined to think that the structure in question primarily functions as a water tank/plant... at least not in general. That spiraling ramp/roadway (I don't think its a pipe as others would claim) would mean that the "water tank" will be occasionally subjected to vehicle "live load" from above - all the time... which doesn't make any sense at all. It just isn't practical to uniquely reinforce the structure of the supposed water tank just so it can withstand the weight of vehicles. I can't help but think that there's something more to it than meets the eye, but not necessarily something sinister. Just a different function other than purely an irrigation plant. Perhaps it has multiple functions.

The form and shape is very odd, especially if we follow the notion that "form follows function".

I have noticed in the 2nd image, "dome" there appears to be a concrete mixer/agitator in the photo.
There's got to be a concrete plant 'nearby' considering the extreme heat.
Someone there has got to know

Look at Google Earth and you will see the sea to the left of the plant. Its a bit off, I admit, but what does it matter?
So they had a reason to build it a bit off...-

I spent 10 years living in Saudi Arabia, working in support of the US military. If this site is what I think it is. you will not get anywhere near it.

Take some pictures?....so we can PROVE these (visible structures) are raised above the ground =P for anyone who still believes they are a crater/concave.

If this was some sort of top secret tank storage or alien base there is no chance Google Earth would let you see it. They get huge sums of money to hide things. The proof is in the pudding.

Dont worry i was in the millitary too so i know a restricted zone when i see one and i kinda know alot of them around here and im not expecting anything special here. Can i just point this out again that not many have picked up on from my previous post 24°42'52.76"N 54°48'8.34"E does it look familier by any chance maybe an older version of what we are dabating

They go down, it is called underground storage.

DAMMIT!!!! I have a love/hate relationship with how specific you have to be on this site...=/ aaargh!
Had to star you for that! =P I meant the structures visible to us through Google Earth/Maps.

Picking up the thread again, still can't understand why a water or irrigation tank would have vehicle access through the roof? Pipes in and out yeah, but I've never seen a storage tank that needs vehicles access at the top, think of the weight loading on the roof, it's just unnecessary for liquid storage.
