Sohar desalination plant

The Sohar seawater desalination plant, on the coast of Al Batinah, began operating in 2019. This reverse osmosis plant is the second largest in the country. It can desalinate 250,000 m3 water a day and currently supplies close to 220,000 people.

The desalination plant was designed with one essential objective in mind: to optimize the use of water and energy. For that reason, it is operated with a high level of automation.

The project represented an investment of close to 200 million euros. The publicly-owned Oman Power and Water Procurement Company awarded this project to the consortium led by Sacyr Agua (51%), which also included the Oman Brunei Investment Company (25%) and Sogex Oman (24%). The contract included the design, construction, ownership, finance, operation, maintenance and purchase of water for 20 years.
