Bahrain has successfully launched the second phase of the colossal Al-Dur 2 Independent Water and Power Project (IWPP), valued at $1 billion.

The new plant is an extension of Al Dur Phase 1 and features a power generation capacity of 1,500MW and a desalination capacity of 50 million imperial gallons per day (MIGD).

It marks Bahrain’s inaugural utility to be integrated into the 400kV high-voltage transmission network.

The development of this project was spearheaded by an ACWA Power-led consortium that also included Mitsui and Almoayyed Contracting Group.

ACWA Power Chairman Mohammad Abunayyan said that the project was executed on time and with a strong emphasis on sustainability.

Phase 1 of the ambitious $2.1 billion Al Dur IWPP, with a capacity of 1,243MW and 48 MIGD, is currently managed by a consortium comprising ENGIE and Gulf Investment Corporation (GIC).
