DEWA receives five bids for Hassyan advisory role

Dubai Water and Electricity Authority (DEWA) has received five bids for advisory services on a 545,531 m3/d seawater reverse osmosis project in Hassyan.

This will be the first project in Dubai procured using an independent water producer (IWP) model. The bidders were Cranmore Partners from United Arab Emirates (UAE) and the UK, Synergy, India and US, Deloitte, US, PricewaterhouseCoopers, UK, and Ernst & Young, UK.

“The IWP builds on the success of the independent power producer (IPP) model used in Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Solar Park projects. We expect the Hassyan plant to begin production in 2023,” said DEWA managing director and chief executive HE Saeed Mohammed Al Tayer.
