Advisers appointed for major Qatar power and water project

24 Jun 2020

The Facility E IWPP is expected to have a power generation capacity of 2,300MW and a desalination capacity of 100 million imperial gallons a day (MIGD). Bids for the Facility E IWPP are due in August.


Qatar’s state utility Kahramaa has appointed a new advisory team for the planned Facility E independent water and power producer (IWPP) project.

The utility originally appointed advisors for the project in 2017, however the client retendered the advisory contract and has now appointed the new team for the Facility E IWPP, which is expected to have a power generation capacity of 2,300MW and a desalination capacity of 100 million imperial gallons a day (MIGD).

The new advisory team is: PwC (financial adviser), Clyde & Co (legal adviser) and Energo (technical adviser.

Energy & Utilities reported in April that Kahramma had extended the bid submission date for the main development contract on the IWPP by almost four months to 27 August.

The deadline was extended due to the restrictions of movement and meetings put in place in response to the Covid-19 coronavirus outbreak.

Energy & Utilities understands that prequalified bidders for the project include: Engie (France) / Mitsui (Japan), Itochu (Japan), Kepco (South Korea) / Mitsubishi (Japan), Marubeni (Japan), PowerChina (China) and Japan's Sumitomo.

The Facility E IWPP is the first cogeneration project that Qatar has proceeded with since it commissioned the Facility D IWPP in 2018. The Facility D plant was developed with a power generation capacity of 2,500MW and a desalination component of 136 MIGD.

The Facility D IWPP was developed by a consortium led by Japan’s Mitsubishi Corporation and Tokyo Electric Power Company (Tepco). South Korea’s Samsung C&T was the main engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contractor for the 2.5GW combined-cycle power plant, with Japan’s Hitachi Zosen the lead contractor for the desalination plant.

Germany’s Siemens provided turbines and generators for the power plant.
