The UAE's largest privately-owned utility company has floated a tender for the design, build, operation and maintenance of a 100mn imperial gallons (454,600m3) potable water tank farm with associated works in the Northern Emirates.

Utico, a subsidiary of local industrial group Ghantoot, has asked for reputed contractors with experience in construction of tanks of at least 10mn gallons capacity to collect documents upon receipt of a AED 6,000 ($1,633) bond by 12 December.

Paperwork can be collected from Utico offices in Garhoud, Dubai. The final date for tender submissions is 8 February, 2015.

Utico is developing a 270MW clean coal power plant in Ras Al Khaimah (RAK), while in Dubai, Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA) has pledged to meet around 12% of its power demand by 2030 through a 1,200MW plant.

The schedule for the $500mn project, which will burn Indonesian coal, has slipped by around six months due to regulatory and permit issues, but is set for commercial start-up by December 2016.
