Design, Build, Commission and operate (7 years) for the enlargement of the Fujairah desalination plant.

Emirates SembCorp Water & Power Company, a public-private Enterprise, has awarded the water business of ACCIONA, in consortium with the Infrastructure business, a Design, Build, Commission and Operate (7 years) for the enlargement of the Fujairah desalination plant, located in the Emirate of the same name.

The enlargement will give rise to 137,000 m3 /day additional capacity—bringing the original plant’s total capacity to 592,000 m3 /day—and the plant is expected to serve a population equivalent of 600,000 inhabitants. The construction period has been set at 28 months.

In recent years, Fujairah’s coastline has been plagued repeatedly by so-called red tides causing prolonged periods of freshwater shortage in the area. This moved the authorities to call for the enlargement of the plant in an effort to ensure the region’s water supply. The new plant has been designed to guarantee the facility’s correct functioning in the event of further red tide episodes in the region.
