Dewa extends closing date for Hassyan contract

30 July 2008
Dubai Electricity & Water Authority (Dewa) has extended the closing date for the estimated $1.5bn contract to build the Hassyan seawater intake and outfall system to 31 August to give bidders more time.

The turnkey engineering and construction contract involves building a seawater intake and outfall system at the Hassyan power and desalination complex.

It includes onshore and offshore sections of the intake channel and intake protection works. The outfall system comprises an outfall chamber and means of transporting the discharge offshore, a boat house and boat-lifting facilities. The contract also includes ancillary works including roads and lighting.

The entire intake and outfall system is scheduled for completion by 1 December 2010.

Dewa received seven bids to develop the first phase of Station P at Hassyan in late July.

Five of the bids were submitted for the 1,500MW power island, including bids from Hyundai Heavy Industries, Hyundai Engineering & Construction and Doosan Heavy Industries & Construction, all of South Korea. Dubai-based Dodsal Group and China's Shandong Electric Power Construction Corporation also bid.

Italy's Fisia Italimpianti and Doosan submitted bids for the 120 million gallon-a-day desalination island on the project (MEED 22:7:08).
