Dubai Electricity & Water Authority (DEWA) has appointed a consortium of companies as advisors on its Hassyan Sea Water Reverse Osmosis (SWRO) project which aims to produce 120 million imperial gallons per day (MIGD).

Ernst & Young, CMS, and WSP have been hired for the project which is DEWA’s first independent water producer (IWP) model venture.

DEWA adopted the system for the Hassyan desalination plant following the success of the independent power producer (IPP) model at the Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Solar Park projects.
