Bahrain: EWA Unveils Plan For New Desalination Plant In Hawar

The Electricity and Water Authority (EWA) is gearing up for a major infrastructure upgrade with the construction of a new seawater reverse osmosis desalination plant.

Dubbed the “New Hawar SWRO Desalination Plant,” this project aims to bolster water production on Hawar Island, as detailed in a recently released tender.

Scheduled to be developed under an EPC Contract, this ambitious initiative seeks to enhance the water supply infrastructure along Bahrain’s southeastern coast.

With a projected net water capacity (GNCWC) ranging from one to two million imperial gallons per day (MIGD) of potable water, the desalination plant promises to provide a reliable water source for the region.

In addition to the state-ofthe-art desalination facility, the project includes the construction of two ground storage tanks (GSTs), each with a capacity of 1 MIG, as well as the installation of associated forwarding pumps.

This comprehensive approach underscores the EWA’s commitment to meeting the escalating water demands of Bahrain’s residents and businesses.

The upcoming public international tender marks a significant milestone in Bahrain’s efforts to modernise its water infrastructure and strengthen its resilience against water scarcity.

The EWA invites qualified contractors and firms to participate in this transformative project, which is poised to enhance water security and promote sustainable development in the Kingdom.

Interested parties are encouraged to submit bids before the 24th of June 2024, accompanied by a BD5,000 bond with a validity period of 180 days.

The successful bidder will be awarded a 12-month contract to execute the project.
