DEWA selects bidder for 120 MIGD Hassyan Sea Water Reverse Osmosis IWP Project
Published in The Saudi Gazette on 25 - 11 - 2020

Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA) has Wednesday announced that Utico FZC is the Preferred Bidder to build and operate the 120 million gallons per day, MIGD, Hassyan Sea Water Reverse Osmosis, SWRO, Plant, under the IWP model.
DEWA has achieved a new world record, for the lowest levelized water tariff of US$0.277 per cubic meter. This is DEWA's first Independent Water Producer, IWP, project. DEWA released the tender for the project in October 2019 and issued a re-tender in May 2020. The SWRO project is expected to commence production in 2024.
"The development of the project supports the vision of Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, vice president, prime minister and ruler of Dubai, to promote sustainable development. We have a clear direction for the energy sector in Dubai with a priority to use clean energy in line with the Dubai Clean Energy Strategy 2050, to provide 75 percent of Dubai's total power capacity from clean energy sources by 2050.
We are building water production plants based on Reverse Osmosis, RO, which requires less energy than Multi-Stage Flash distillation (MSF) plants, making it a more sustainable choice for water desalination. By 2030, DEWA aims to produce 100 percent of desalinated water by a mix of clean energy and waste heat," said Saeed Mohammed Al Tayer, MD and CEO of DEWA.
"The project is part of DEWA's strategy to increase the water desalination capacity in Dubai to 750 MIGD, from 470 MIGD at present. We ensure the continuation of the 100 percent availability of DEWA's services according to the highest levels of availability, reliability, and efficiency thanks to our state-of-the-art infrastructure and advanced technologies.
"This is based on innovation and sound scientific planning so that we contribute to making the UAE the world's leading nation by its centennial in 2071," Al Tayer added. — WAM
