Dewa delays deadline for P Station bids

05 November 2008
Dubai Electricity & Water Authority (Dewa) has delayed the deadline for bids for phase 2 of the P Station power and water project at Hassyan.

The date for the final submission of bids has now been extended from 30 December to 29 January.

In late October, Dewa scrapped the tender for the first phase of P Station for the second time, citing high prices as the reason. It has not yet decided how to proceed with the project.

When the first phase plant is built, it will have a power generating capacity of 1,500MW and 120 million gallons a day (g/d) of desalination capacity.

The second phase will have a power generating capacity of 1,300-1,500MW and a desalination capacity of 100-120 million g/d.

Bids for both phases of the plant were first submitted in April. Dewa then retendered the first phase of the scheme in May and fresh bids were submitted in July (MEED 23:10:08).
