Bahrain Launches Tender Process for New Seawater Reverse Osmosis (SWRO) Desalination Facility

The Electricity and Water Authority of Bahrain (EWA) has announced a tender invitation for the establishment of a new desalination facility using seawater reverse osmosis (SWRO), reflecting the country’s dedication to innovative approaches for its water requirements.

The intended construction site for this facility is Hawar Island, located off the Kingdom’s southeastern shoreline.

Parties interested in contributing to this vital infrastructure endeavor, which seeks to enhance Bahrain’s water provision, are encouraged to submit their proposals by the June 23 deadline.

The Tender Board of the Kingdom of Bahrain has disclosed that the upcoming Hawar SWRO desalination plant will incorporate a facility with the ability to generate between one and two million imperial gallons daily (MIGD) of drinking water.

The plan also involves setting up two ground storage tanks (GSTs), each with a one MIG capacity, and the necessary forwarding pumps.

This significant project is scheduled for completion within a year, following an Engineering, Procurement, and Construction (EPC) contract framework.

Bidders are expected to have considerable expertise in the design, construction, and operational commencement of SWRO desalination plants.

In particular, candidates should have completed a minimum of two SWRO desalination projects, including both green-field and brown-field types, within the last ten years.

Moreover, those who are selected must have managed projects that have not only achieved a minimum output of five MIGD but also have maintained successful operations for at least two years.
