Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA) has started the competitive tender process to select a development partner for the Hassyan Independent Water Project (IWP), according to a public notice

The 120 million imperial gallons per day (MIGD) sea water reverse osmosis (SWRO) desalination project would be Dubai's first ever IWP, according to a DEWA press statement issued last month.

In a public notice issued on Monday, the utility said it has issued an Expression of Interest (EOI) tender to select developer/developers or developer consortium/consortia to build and operate the IWP.

The project would be commissioned in stages by the third quarter of 2023, the notice said, adding that water generated by the project would be purchased by DEWA under a long-term water purchase agreement.

The deadline for the submission of EOI is 9 July, 2019, the notice added.

Last month, DEWA had announced the appointment of a consortium of Ernst & Young (EY), CMS, and WSP as advisors for the IWP.
