Project Scope

The project scope involves the development of a major new desalination plant in the Mirfa area of Abu Dhabi.

 

The planned Mirfa 2 (M2) independent water project (IWP) will be a reverse osmosis (RO) facility that will have the capacity to supply up to 80 million imperial gallons a day (MIGD) of desalinated water. 

 

The IWP will be developed next to the existing Mirfa independent water and power project (IWPP).

 

As per the notification, M2 will play a key role in the ongoing cost reduction initiatives in the sector through the procurement of competitive and efficient RO water desalination technology. This is part of EWEC’s wider strategic initiative of decoupling power and water generation capacity.

Project Structure:
The project is owned, operated and managed by the Emirates Water and Electricity Company (Ewec) of Abu Dhabi. The successful developer or developer consortium will own up to 40 percent of the entity while the remaining equity will be primarily held indirectly by the Abu Dhabi Government. An advisory team of Alderbook, White & Case and Fichtner is financial, legal and technical advisers respectively.
