Major Agreement Signed for Ghubrah Desalination Plant’s Third Phase in Oman

In a significant move for Oman’s water sector, His Excellency Dr. Saud bin Hamoud Al-Habsi, Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries, and Water Resources, oversaw the signing of an agreement between Nama Power and Water Company and CDCo. This collaboration marks the commencement of the third phase of the Ghubrah desalination plant, the largest facility of its kind in Oman and a cornerstone project in the nation’s water strategy.

The consortium, CDCo., is an alliance of three prominent international and local companies led by GS Inima. With over fifty years of expertise, GS Inima is a global leader in water desalination and treatment, particularly known for its pioneering work in reverse osmosis. The consortium also includes Aljomaih Energy and Water Company from Saudi Arabia and Sogex Company from Oman.

GS Inima will spearhead the design and construction of the plant as the EPC (Engineering, Procurement, and Construction) contractor. The plant is projected to begin operations in the first quarter of 2027, significantly bolstering water security in Oman.

The third phase of the Ghubrah desalination plant comes with an investment of approximately 125 million Omani rials (around 300 million euros). Upon completion, it will have a production capacity of 300,000 cubic meters of desalinated water per day, which represents about 20% of the total capacity of Oman’s main water network.

This facility will employ cutting-edge reverse osmosis technology to enhance energy efficiency and increase the production capacity of desalinated water, meeting both current and future population needs. Spanning over 70,000 square meters, the plant will also feature a potable water tank with a daily capacity of 45,000 cubic meters.

GS Inima is committed to sustainable water supply and development in Oman, aiming to achieve a combined water production capacity of 400,000 cubic meters per day between the Barka V and Ghubrah III desalination plants.

The company prioritizes sustainability through the implementation of advanced design solutions, minimizing electricity consumption, and maintaining high water quality standards through rigorous control systems during both operation and maintenance phases.
