China National Corporation for Overseas Economic Cooperation (CCOEC) has signed a deal with Yemen's government to build three power plants in the country
The country's official news agency, Saba, said that the deal will see three natural gas-fired plants built in Balhaf-Shabwa, Ma'abar- Dhamar, and Hodeida - each of which will generate between 400-750MW.
Under the agreement, the Chinese company will also build transmission stations and a pipeline to transport natural gas from the Safer area in Marib to Ma'abar city, Dhamar, and Hodeida.
Transition stations and a natural gas pipeline to fire the plants are also set to be built.
Yemen's electricity and energy ministry is set to conduct a feasibility study for the potential projects before construction commences.
