Dubai Electricity & Water Authority (DEWA) has retendered its 120 million gallons per day (MIGD) Hassyan Sea Water Reverse Osmosis Plant (SWRO) project
The project is DEWA’s first Independent Water Producer (IWP) DEWA retenders 120 MIGD Hassyan Sea Water Reverse Osmosis IWPmodel project – DEWA has adopted the IWP procurement model 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 project will be commissioned in August 2023. The plant will use the latest and most efficient and reliable technologies to support DEWA’s water network to ensure sustainable water supply.
HE Saeed Mohammed Al Tayer, MD & CEO of DEWA commented:
“We are building production plants based on Reverse Osmosis (RO) which requires less energy than the Multi-stage Flash Distillation (MSF) based plants, making it a more sustainable choice for water desalination .DEWA aims to produce 100% of desalinated water by a mix of clean energy and waste heat,”
“The project is part of DEWA’s strategy to increase the water desalination capacity in Dubai. DEWA is currently desalinating water through the joint production of energy and water using efficient MSF distillation technology, which depends on waste heat created by the production of electricity for water desalination. DEWA also uses RO to desalinate water, a proven technology that is also used around the world, to absorb a considerable amount of generated power by clean energy,” added Al Tayer.
DEWA is now inviting bids for the process from interested parties with previous experience of building and operating similar projects – submission deadline is Monday 3 August 2020.
