ACCIONA set to build Fujairah plant expansionby Adam Lane on Jan 22, 2013
Spain’s ACCIONA has been awarded a contract, valued at over US $200 million, to design, build and operate the expansion of the Fujairah desalination plant in the UAE. Emirates Sembcorp Water & Power Co. selected the firm to work on the project to add 137,000m3/day capacity.
ACCIONA has won the deal as a consortium made up of ACCIONA Agua (75%) and ACCIONA Infrastructure (25%), and has said that it is the first desalination contract it has been awarded within the UAE. The expanded facility is set to have a total capacity of 592,000m3/day, serving a population of nearly 600,000. Work is scheduled to take 28 months.
The firm, in October of last year, was awarded a $100 million deal to build Saudi’s Al Jubail desalination plant, and earlier this month was awarded an operation and maintenance deal for two wastewater treatment plants in Mecca Province, with a combined capacity of 375,000m3/day.
