Dewa retenders Hassyan desal project

July 2020

The Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (Dewa) has re-tendered its Hassyan Sea Water Reverse Osmosis Plant project using the independent water producer (IWP) model and is inviting bids for the process.

The 120-million-gallons-per-day (mgpd) project is Dewa’s first IWP model project.

In an official press release, Dewa has invited interested parties to take part in the tendering process and submit the bids by August 3.

“We are building production plants based on reverse osmosis, which requires less energy than the multi-stage flash distillation based plants, making it a more sustainable choice for water desalination,” said Saeed Mohammed Al Tayer, Managing Director and CEO of Dewa. “We aim to produce 100 per cent of desalinated water by a mix of clean energy and waste heat.”

According to him, Dewa has adopted the IWP procurement model for the Hassyan desalination plant following the success of the IPP model at the Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Solar Park projects.

 The Hassyan Sea Water Reverse Osmosis Plant will be commissioned in August 2023, said Al Tayer.

The plant will use the latest and most efficient and reliable technologies to support Dewa’s water network to ensure sustainable water supply, he added.
