SEOUL -- Doosan Heavy Industries & Construction has joined a multinational consortium to build a $203 seawater desalination plant capable of producing about 80,000 tons of fresh water a day in Oman.

Doosan Heavy said Monday the consortium involving Japanese engineering company JGC and Oman's UIDC would complete the construction of the Sharqiyah plant about 220 kilometers southeast of Muscat by April 2021 under an engineering procurement construction (EPC) deal.

Doosan's share in the project was not disclosed. The company controls a five-percent stake in Al Asilah, a special purpose company in charge of managing the desalination plant. JGC holds 75 percent while UIDC owns 20 percent.

Doosan Heavy builds nuclear power plants, thermal power stations, turbines and generators and desalination plants.
