Tender launched to upgrade  Ras Abu Jarjour desalination plant

Manama, July 3 (BNA): The Electricity and Water Authority has called for bids worth 20 million dinars to modernize the reverse osmosis water desalination plant in Ras Abu Jarjour.

Kamal bin Ahmed Mohammed, Chairman of the Electricity and Water Company, said that international companies competing for the project will be required to submit their competitive technical and financial bids, within the latest international standards.

The Authority has completed the tender documents and is now in the process of uploading them to the electronic system (e-Tendering) of the Tender Board in order to open the way for interested companies to apply for the purchase of tender documents.

The project to modernize the water desalination plant in Ras Abu Jarjour by reverse osmosis from underground wells aims to extend the life of the plant by 20 years.

The upgraded plant will also contribute to securing water and strategic reserves in the Kingdom of Bahrain in emergency situations.

The project’s scope of work includes the development and implementation of electromechanical works and the replacement of high-pressure pumps with more efficient ones capable of saving energy.

The project also consists in replacing the membranes of the reverse osmosis units, upgrading the civil structure, in addition to using the latest technologies compatible with environmental requirements in the operation of the plant.

The Ras Abu Jarjour reverse osmosis water desalination plant was inaugurated in 1984. Its production capacity was gradually developed over different periods of time by increasing the number of existing desalination units and developing its production capacity until it reached 16 million imperial gallons per day of drinking water.
