His Royal Highness Prince Salman bin Hamad Al Khalifa, Bahrain’s Crown Prince and Prime Minister, inaugurated the Al Dur 2 Phase Two Independent Water and Power Project (IWPP), which has been built at a total investment of $1 billion. The facility is the first production station in the kingdom connected to the high-voltage electricity transmission network of 400 KV. Established by Bahrain’s Electricity and Water Authority (EWA) in partnership with Acwa Power and Japanese companies, the IWPP generates 1,500 MW of electricity and processes 50 million gallons of desalinated water daily. The station brings the kingdom’s production capacity to 5,044 MW of electricity and 204 million gallons of desalinated water daily.
