Mohammed Al Mahrouqi, chairman of Public Authority for Electricity and Water (PAEW), will patron ACWA Power Barka's water expansion project ground breaking ceremony which will be held. The event will also be attended by ACWA Power Barka's chairman, Mohammad bin Abdullah Abunayyan, and dignitaries from various ministries, government agencies and company officials.
The project is part of the expansion plans of ACWA Power Barka to produce an additional 10 MIGD (million imperial gallons per day) of potable water. The new independent water project (IWP) will be developed on a build, own and operate (BOO) basis adjacent to ACWA Power Barka's existing plant. The existing desalination facility has been producing 20 MIGD of potable water since 2003 and the new plant is expected to catapult the production levels to 30 MIGD.
The additional desalinated water capacity produced by the expansion project will help in strengthening the Sultanate's water production capacity and meet the increasing demand for potable water in Oman which is estimated to be rising at eight per cent per annum. The new plant will be the first of its kind and will reuse seawater heat-rejection from the existing desalination process for potable water capacity addition.
