What makes it special?

The water tariff achieved by the project is a record low for Bahrain.

As one of the largest infrastructure projects in the world to be delivered in 2020, the project had to overcome a host of pandemic-related delivery difficulties, including restrictions on material and manpower entry, delays in fabrication and shipping, quarantines and on-site distancing.

To deliver a project of this scale in the midst of a pandemic is a truly impressive achievement.
