The US$400mn Hassyan coal-fired plant is expected to operate in two phases, due in 2020 and 2021, said DEWA CEO Saeed Al Tayer. By 2030, the share of power generation from the coal-fired plant will reach seven per cent of the energy production.

In addition, DEWA has signed a contract with Siemens for the expansion of the Jebel Ali M-station. The new combined-cycle power plant will add 700MW to the installed generating capacity of M-Station, boosting its capacity to 2,760MW when the project is completed in 2018.

The expansion project includes adding two gas turbine generators, two heat recovery steam turbine generators and one back-pressure steam turbine. This will increase the plant’s thermal efficiency from 82.4 per cent to 85.8 per cent, which is considered to be one of the highest thermal-efficiency rates in the world, added Al Tayer.
