Qatar General Electricity & Water Corporation (Kahramaa) has extended the bid submission deadline for its Facility E Independent Power and Water Producer (IWPP) project in Ras Fontas after requesting fresh bids in January following power capacity revision, a source close to the project said.

The source told Zawya Projects that the bid submission deadline has been extended to 30 June 2021 with the contract award expected in August 2021. The project completion date remains unchanged.
 
In January 2021, Zawya Projects had reported that the approximately $3 billion project would have capacity of 2,600 megawatts of power and 130 million imperial gallons per day of water.
