Evaluation of Aquifer Storage & Recovery – Oman- Muscat

The Public Authority for Electricity & Water (PAEW) has issued a tender for a pre-feasibility study into aquifer storage and recovery (ASR).

The organisation is inviting consultancies to bid to help evaluate the application of large-scale underground storage of water in ASR schemes. ASR enables utilities to store produced water in an aquifer when there is surplus but then recover the water when it is needed.

After desalinated water is stored, it usually requires “only disinfection” before being sent out to the water distribution system, said PAEW. In many cases, the storage zones are aquifers that have experienced [

Oman’s Public Authority for Electricity and Water (PAEW) has floated tenders for a pair of small water desalination plants (typically with a capacity of 1,000 to 10,000 cu m/day) to be implemented for the first time on a build-own-operate (BOO) basis.

PAEW – also known as ‘Diam’ – follows a new project delivery model adopted by the authority in 2015 that advocates a role for private investors in the development of small water schemes in isolated parts of the country, reported Oman Observer.
