Bahrain’s EWA Launches New Water Reservoirs in Seef

Bahrain's Electricity and Water Authority (EWA) has launched two new water reservoirs at the Seef Water Distribution Station.


These reservoirs will serve to increase Bahrain’s water reserves by 3.6 per cent, said a statement from EWA.


They are characterized by their unique engineering designs with aesthetic facades that make them blend into their surroundings.


Also, the outside walls of the reservoirs and its facade have been used to install solar panels for the production of renewable energy, it added.


After inaugurating the reservoirs, EWA Chief Executive Sheikh Nawaf bin Ibrahim Al Khalifa said the Seef Water Distribution Station includes a five-million-gallon underground reservoir as well as a one-million-gallon overhead reservoir for the Seef Water Park project.


The project is part of a strategic plan of the authority to preserve the aesthetic appearance of Bahrain and to produce renewable energy.


This experiment will be expanded to cover all such reservoirs in other Bahrain areas as well, he stated.


Sheikh Nawaf pointed out that the new engineering design had contributed to the provision of required storage of water in a harmonious fashion with neighbouring facilities and set up a renewable energy facility.


"The project comes within the framework of the masterplan set by the EWA to develop and expand the water transport networks in Bahrain in light of the guidance and interests of the wise leadership led by His Majesty King Hamad and his government led by Prime Minister HRH Prince Khalifa bin Salman Al Khalifa and the Crown Prince, Deputy Supreme Commander and First Deputy Prime Minister, HRH Prince Salman bin Hamad Al Khalifa," he added.


"The plan includes the provision of electricity and water services and to meet the growing demand for these services in line with the development of urban, industrial and commercial areas while maintaining Bahrain’s aesthetic character to provide better services for citizens and residents as well as to attract foreign investments," he added.
