Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA) has issued a Request for Proposal (RFP) to nine qualified bidders for a 120 Million Gallons Per Day (MIGD) Sea Water Reverse Osmosis (SWRO) Plant. This is the first water desalination project that DEWA has undertaken that uses the Independent Water Producer (IWP) model.

DEWA has adopted IWP for the Hassyan desalination plant, following the success of the Independent Power Producer (IPP) model at the Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Solar Park projects. The SWRO project is expected to start operations in 2023. The SWRO desalination plant will use the most efficient, proven and reliable state-of-the-art technology. The plant will provide a sustainable supply for DEWA’s water network.

As of November 7, DEWA has received 34 Request for Qualification (RFQ) documents for a 120 MIGD SWRO IWP project. Subsequently, DEWA evaluated them and shortlisted nine pre-qualified bidders to submit their proposals. The closing date to submit the bids is 31 January 2020.
