The Energy Ministry has issued the tender for the engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contract to expand the Subiya desalination facility. Seven companies have been invited to bid by 26 December on the estimated $300 million project, which calls for the installation of four 12.5 million-gallon-a-day (g/d) multi-stage-flash (MSF) units. A pre-tender meeting will be held on 9 November. The units are expected to be commissioned in about 30-32 months.
The project is the second phase of work at the site. In May, South Korea's Doosan Heavy Industries & Construction Companywon the estimated KD 109 million ($376 million) lump-sum turnkey (LSTK) first-phase contract to install 50 million g/d of desalination capacity.
