Council of Ministers issued the resolution to expand scope of work for Water and Electricity L.L.C

Shuaibah Expansion IWP

 

The Project was requested by the Government to be developed on an urgent basis to add 150,000 m3/d net water desalination capacity.  SAMAWEC, the successful bidder for the Shuaibah IWPP, was invited to submit a proposal to develop the Project broadly under the same economics and contractual arrangements as the Shuaibah IWPP. The Project is located on a reclaimed land south of Shuaibah III IWPP.  The Project is currently on full production.
