25 firms qualified to bid for Taweelah water project

ABU DHABI, June 25, 2018

Abu Dhabi's Department of Energy (DOE) has qualified 25 companies to bid for the Independent Water Project (IWP) in Taweelah.
 
The selected developer or developer consortium will own up to 40 per cent of the project’s share, said a Wam news agency report.
 
The project will be established in accordance with Abu Dhabi and the UAE’s laws concerning the production of reverse osmosis desalinated water by independent producers.
 
The project includes the development, financing, establishment, operation, maintenance and ownership of the water desalination plant at a capacity of 200 MIGD, in addition to the related infrastructure. 
 
The plant will be constructed at the Taweelah power and water complex, approximately 45 km north of Abu Dhabi city.
 
Awaidha Murshed Al Marar, chairman of the DOE, stated: "This project will support Abu Dhabi’s steps towards sustainability and energy mix."
 
Mohamed bin Jarsh Al Falasi, the under-secretary of the DOE, said the plant will strengthen the UAE’s position in general and Abu Dhabi’s in particular as a leading site for IWPP projects in partnership with the private sector. 
 
More than 40 companies expressed their interest in the tender, which was notified in the international and local media this month. Twenty-seven companies have submitted a statement of qualifications based on the request issued on February 15. After comprehensive revision of all the submitted statement of qualifications, 25 companies were qualified (including local companies). These companies will receive detailed 'Request for Proposals'.
 
Thirteen companies were qualified on an independent basis. Therefore, they can submit their own proposals without the need to form a joint venture with other eligible parties. The remaining 12 companies were qualified on a conditional basis, as they were informed in writing by the DOE that they can join the competition by forming a joint venture with other qualified companies. The last date to submit the proposals is October 29, 2018.
