The Emirates Water and Electricity Company and Saudi Arabia’s ACWA Power have signed the water purchase agreement for the world’s largest sea water reverse osmosis desalination plant to be constructed at Taweelah Power and Water Complex, 50 km north of Abu Dhabi, at a cost of up to $900 million.
Acwa Power, a global leader in water desalination and power generation, joined over 15,000 attendees and 66 ministers at this year’s World Energy Congress (WEC) in Abu Dhabi to highlight its position as a global total solution provider across the power and water sectors.
Announced during a workshop held by DoE, which was attended by all concerned parties, the policy supports efforts to preserve Abu Dhabi’s water resources, including drinking and underground water, in order to meet the future needs of all sectors.
Developed in cooperation with the Treated Wastewater Reuse Committee, the ‘Recycled Water Policy’ reinforces its role in ensuring sustainable supplies of recycled water through the distribution companies, said a statement from the DoE.
Dubai: Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA) released an invitation for interested companies to apply for Expression of Interests (EOIs) for the 120 million imperial gallons per day (MIGD) Hassyan Sea Water Reverse Osmosis (SWRO) project, for competent companies that work based on the Independent Water Producer (IWP) model to enter the project.
Saeed Mohammed Al Tayer, MD and CEO of Dewa inaugurated the centre, which Dewa built in collaboration with Siemens. It is the first-of-its-kind in the Arabian Gulf region and the biggest Siemens Simulator of-its-kind worldwide. It aims to enhance the capabilities of engineers and technicians at Dewa.
Al Tayer noted that the Simulator and Training Centre will contribute to consolidating Emiratisation of engineering and technical jobs at Dewa, providing a unique experience to those working in the Generation division. This is achieved using state-of-the-art technologies and best international practices that enable trainees to experience real-life conditions and provide them with the skills needed for dealing with different circumstances.
Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA) has broken the world record in major inspection outages by re-engineering the Gas Turbine SGT-4000F overhaul process at the Jebel Ali Power and Desalination Complex.
DEWA succeeded the completion of its major inspection outage within 11 working days compared to 30 working days previously. This allows a 63% reduction in outage duration, leading to increased availability of its gas turbines.
“This meets the directives of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, to continue the path towards excellence and being first in everything. We aim to continuously develop our programmes, plans, and projects to strengthen our competitive position globally level to achieve the highest reliability, efficiency, and savings in operational and maintenance expenditure.
The Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (Dewa) has appointed a consortium of companies including Ernst & Young (E & Y), CMS, and WSP as advisors on the Hassyan’s Sea Water Reverse Osmosis (SWRO) Project to produce 120 million imperial gallons per day.
The project is Dewa’s first Independent Water Producer model (IWP) project. Dewa adopted the IWP system for the Hassyan desalination plant following the success of the Independent Power Producer model at the Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Solar Park projects.
The SWRO project is expected to commence production in 2023. The desalination plant will use the most efficient and proven art technology available at the mark. The plant will supply the Dewa water transmission network to ensure sustainable supply.
