Singapore firm Hyflux has been awarded a US$250 million contract to design, build, own and operate the Qurayyat 200,000 m3/day desalination project in Oman.

Hyflux fought off stiff competition for the reverse osmosis (RO) project, with bids from six groups including Abgengoa and Acwa Power.

Government owned Oman Power and Water Procurement Company (OPWP) awarded the contract for the independent water project (IWP).

Together with the National Power and Water Co, Hyflux is scheduled to commence operation of the plant by May 2017 under a 20-year water purchase agreement with OPWP.

Hyflux’s role includes turnkey engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) as well as operation and maintenance of the plant.

The project is not expected to have a material financial impact on Hyflux for the financial year ended 31 December 2014.

Last month the Singaporean company opened its 500,000 m3/day desalination plant in Algeria (see WWi story).
