Reservoir will have a capacity of 30 million imperial gallons a day (MIGD)

Dubai Electricity & Water Authority (Dewa) has received proposals from consultants for the planned development of a 30 million imperial gallon a day (MIGD) water reservoir in Hatta.

 The utility company received proposals from six consultants for the contract. Four of the six bidders submitted two proposals, an A and a B bid. An from Switzerland’s Poyry was rejected due to no tender bond being provided, according to the results published on Dewa’s tender board.

The lowest bid of AED4m ($1.1m) was submitted by the local NJS Consultants as its B offer. The second lowest offer was the B offer of AED4.1m submitted by the local Aqleh Engineering Consultants.

The full list of accepted bids is:

  • NJS Consultants (local), AED4m (B offer), AED4.3m (A offer)
  • Aqleh Engineering Consultant (local), AED4.1m (B offer), AED4.8m (A offer)

  • Meinhardt (Singapore, AED5.2m (B offer), AED6.2m (A offer)
  • Sogreah Gulf (local), AED7m (B offer), AED9.7m (A offer)

The Hatta reservoir is part of Dubai’s plans to increase its water storage capacity.

Dewa is also planning to develop larger water reservoirs at Nakhali and Lusaily.

The utility has also invited contractors to submit bids for two contracts: one for Nakhali reservoirs 1 and 2, with a total capacity of 120 million imperial gallons a day (MIGD), and the second for the 60 MIGD Lusaily reservoir. Bids are due on 18 July.
