About the entity

The Sharjah Electricity, Water and Gas Authority (SEWA) discloses plans to increase the production of desalinated water in the northern emirate by building a new desalination plant in Al Hamriyah region, reports ZAWYA.

The new facility will produce 90 million gallons per day, according to a statement released by Sewa.

Essam Al Mulla, Director of the Water and Desalination Plants Department, said the Authority had already spoken with several consultants and international houses to implement the project.  

He added that the studies of viability take around a year and a half and that the implementation takes approximately three years, therefore, the desalination plant is expected to be running in 2026.

The facility is part of Sewa's strategy to sustain water and provide it for development projects and for future generations.
