Kuwait’s Ministry of Electricity & Water has received 31 statements of qualification (SOQs) from contractors to build a 100 million gallon-a-day (g/d) reverse-osmosis desalination plant to treat wastewater at Doha.

The project will be carried out in two phases, each with a capacity of 50 million g/d. Stage one, which includes the construction of a 50 million g/d unit, in addition to the infrastructure preparation for stage two, will be commissioned by 2016. Phase two will be commissioned by 2017.

The ministry issued a request for qualification (RFQ) to companies in June (MEED 1:7:12).
