Fisia Italimpianti, a unit of the Webuild Group, has won two engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contracts worth a combined total of about $330m for two  desalination plants in Oman.

Commissioned by the Oman Power and Water Procurement Company (OPWP), Fisia Italimpianti and its joint-venture partner GS Inima Environment will build plants that use reverse osmosis.

The first, Ghubrah 3 IWP, will have a production capacity of 300,000 cubic metres of water a day, making it the biggest in Oman.

The second, Barka 5 IWP, will produce 100,000 cubic metres a day.

Each is expected to take three years to complete.

Fisia Italimpianti has a 50% stake in both joint-ventures.  

Fisia Italimpianti entered Oman in 2017 with the Salalah reverse osmosis desalination plant designed to produce 113,500 cubic metres a day. Webuild said its construction is to be completed soon.
