Oman Power & Water Procurement Company (OPWP) has invited companies to submit bids for a contract to provide temporary desalination services.

The work involves providing temporary desalination services at two sites. The utility has set a deadline of 12 July for bid submissions.

The projects are part of Muscat’s efforts to meet rapidly growing demand for water.

MEED recently reported that OPWP has set a 3 August bid deadline for the deals to develop the country’s next major independent water projects (IWPs), which will be located at Sohar and Barka.

The Barka IWP will have a capacity of 280,000 cubic metres a day (cm/d), while the Sohar IWP will have a capacity of 250,000 cm/d. Both plants will use reverse osmosis (RO) technology.
