Construction work on Kuwait’s Doha East Power and Desalination plant in Al Jahra Governorate, which Ministry of Electricity and Water is developing, is proceeding as scheduled, with the facility on track for completion by Q3 2021.

According to a report by Construction Week’s sister title MEP Middle East citing data by construction listings website ProTenders, UAE-based Golden Rays Electromechanical Works has been appointed as the infrastructure contractor for the project.

The ministry had awarded the engineering, procurement, and construction contract for the plant in April 2019. 

Doha East's scope of works includes the construction and maintenance of a 2,400MW power plant and desalination plant which will have the capacity of 454,609 m3 of water per day, according to the report. 

Construction Week has reached out to Golden Rays Electromechanical Works for additional information about the desalination project, and will report updates if and when the company responds.
