Qatar Electricity and Water Company (QEWC) has announced that it has completed the financial arrangement with internationally syndicated lenders to fund Umm Al Houl Power's (UHP) on-going project to increase desalinated water production capacity by reverse osmosis membrane technology (RO expansion project).
This was announced by the listed company in its regulatory filing with the Qatar Stock Exchange. However, the company neither specified the size of the funding, nor gave details of the members of the syndicate.
At present, UHP is generating 2,520MW (megawatt) of electricity and 136.5 MIGD (million imperial gallons per day) of desalinated water.
Upon completion, the RO expansion project will add 61.45 MIGD extra water output and raise water production capacity to 197.95 MIGD. The project will be one of the largest power and desalinated water producers in the Middle East.
The operation of the RO expansion project is planned to commence in April 2021 and will be continued until 2043 on a long term basis along with UHP’s current production. As the reliable producer of living essential utility, electricity and water, UHP will continue to contribute to Qatar.
