During the long dry season hit most parts of East Java in 2019, there were 566 villages in 180 sub-districts that are categorized as dry areas with critical clean water supply, 236 villages in 93 sub-districts as rare dry areas, and 20 villages in 14 sub-districts experienced limited dryness. In big cities in Indonesia, clean water service coverage has only reached 64.3%, while in rural areas still at 69.4%. This proves that most of the regions in Indonesia still experiencing a clean water crisis. Therefore, alternative clean water processing technology is needed to help supply clean water in these areas. Desalination as one of the technologies is essential for coastal areas that are remote from freshwater resources. In this paper, authors propose a design of photovoltaic reverse osmosis (PVRO) desalination plant at remote coastal area to supply clean water. A 100 m3/day design of PVRO, which is compact and energy efficient including the ultrafiltration method is introduced.
