ACWA Power (SIDEM as EPC contractor) is preferred bidder for the Al Dur 2 IWPP Project.

This project is an IWPP with a 50MIGD SWRO Desalination plant (227,300m³/d) and a 1,500MW power plant in Bahrain. 

SIDEM as EPC contractor for the desalination plant

Two bids have been received by EWA from ACWA Power, and Sumitomo. In August, it was announced that ACWA Power (SIDEM as EPC contractor) had submitted the lowest offer.

Back in May 2017, EWA issued a request for qualifications for the independant water and power project. 

This project fits into EWA’s long term plan to increase the capacity of the existing site.
