Contractors prepare for long wait for project’s request for proposals

Kuwait’s Ministry of Electricity and Water (MEW) intends to invite bids to build a reverse osmosis plant at Doha in April 2013.

According to a source at the ministry, studies need to be carried out at the site before the request for proposals can be issued. A soil investigation and environmental study will start in September.

The reverse-osmosis plant will have a capacity of 100 million gallons a day (g/d) and will treat wastewater at Doha.

The project will be carried out in two phases, each with a capacity of 50 million g/d. Phase 1 is divided into two stages. Stage one 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 2 will be commissioned by 2017.

The ministry issued a request for qualification (RFQ) to companies in June. A total of 31 companies responded to the RFQ.
