Barka 1 is the first IWPP developed as part of the privatization program of the Sultanate of Oman. It was also the first dual purpose power generation and desalination plant 100% owned by international and local investors. The plant began commercial operations in June 2003, and a majority stake was acquired by ACWA Power in August 2010.
This facility contributes 6% of the electricity and 24% of the desalinated water in Oman.
