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 1.41106 m3year at a unit cost of 5m3 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.
