Barka II power and water desalination plant in Oman back to service

  • Barka II power and water desalination plant in Oman back to service

About the entity

Work to repair the Barka II power and water desalination plant in Oman has been completed earlier than expected, reported Thomson Reuters Zawya.com.

The plant, located about 50 km northwest of the capital city of Oman, uses reverse osmosis technology to produce 120,000 m3 of potable water per day. Water is supplied to Oman Water Transmission. The plant has three gas and two steam turbines that supply 678 MW of electrical power to the Sultanate of Oman.

The outage and repair work had a financial impact of approximately 700,000 Omani rials (about 1.8 million dollars), informed the CEO of SMN Holding, owner of the plant.

On March 18th, an inspection of the plant’s gas turbine had detected some damage to the turbine blades. After opening the turbine to assess the damage, the company reported damages to turbine blades and vanes on stages 1 and 2.
