EWEC Requests EOI on Seawater Desalination Plants in Abu Dhabi
The Emirates Water and Electricity Co. (EWEC), has invited expressions of interest on the development of the Abu Dhabi Islands Reverse Osmosis Independent Water Project.
The project consists of two standalone greenfield reverse osmosis seawater desalination plants to be located on Saadiyat Island and Hudayriat Island.
Through sustainable and low carbon methods, both plants will produce 450 million liters per day covering the water demand of 180,000 households in Abu Dhabi.
Othman Al-Ali, EWEC CEO, stated: “Reverse osmosis is a vital low-carbon intensive seawater desalination technology that enables EWEC to strategically change its water and power generation portfolio, and ultimately contribute to the decarbonization of the energy sector."
