“An area of more than 65,500 square meters has been reserved inside, but no limited (Al Ansab STP, A’Seeb STP, Al Ghubrah reservoirs and Ghala reservoirs) in the first phase,” OWWSC said in the bid document.
According to the tender document, an area of over 65,500 square meters has been reserved within, but not limited to, Al Ansab STP, A’Seeb STP, Al Ghubrah Reservoirs and Ghala Reservoirs.
The proposed project, which aims to provide OWWSC’s fixed assets with cheaper and green electricity, has a size between 10-15 MWp capacity. It will generate renewable energy as part of Oman’s environmental sustainability towards Vision 2040 and help reduce carbon dioxide emissions roadmap to reach Net Zero by 2050.

The Omani government aims to increase the capacity of renewable energy sources by about 4 GW by 2030. In addition to electricity-scale project development, the country’s new rooftop electricity industry regulation announced in 2018 supports this goal.
