Muscat - All works relating to the water transmission line project linking the Sohar Water Desalination Plant and the Al Dahirah Governorate have been completed and its commercial operation has begun. The total cost of the project is OMR 150mn.
Announcing this, Ibrahim bin Hamed al Hasani, Project Senior Manager of the Oman Water and Wastewater Services Company, said, “The project included the linking of water transmission lines, over a distance of 230 km, to the Sohar Desalination plant, and the construction of 15 tanks with a total storage capacity of 451.000 cubic metres in the Wilayat of Sohar, Ibri and Dhank.
