Abu Dhabi to invite bids for power plant by Sept

Abu Dhabi will invite bids for a new independent water and power project (IWPP), its ninth facility, by September as the emirate boosts capacity to meet rising demand, two sources said on Wednesday.

The emirate’s top decision making body, the Abu Dhabi Executive Council, last month approved Abu Dhabi Water & Electricity Authority’s (ADWEA) plan to build a new IWPP at Mirfa, about 160 km along the coast from the UAE’s capital city.

“Advisors for the project will be appointed first and the process of prequalifying companies will start in about three to four months,” a source at the state-owned utility told Reuters.
