Yokogawa Electric Korea (YEK) and Yokogawa Solution Service Corporation (YSS) – subsidiaries of Yokogawa Electric Corporation (YEC) – have received orders to provide control systems for thermal power and desalination plants to be constructed for Qatar’s Umm Al Houl Power
The thermal power plant and reverse osmosis desalination plant have been ordered by Samsung C&T and Acciona Agua, respectively. The control system order received by YSS is for a multi-stage flashing system desalination plant, placed by Hitachi Zosen Corporation.
These plants are being built for Umm Al Houl Power at a location 20 km south of Doha and the plan is to provide the power and water produced to the Qatar General Electricity and Water Corporation (Kahramaa) for a period of 25 years.
The power plant will utilise a combined cycle power generation system and its capacity is estimated to be 2.4GW. The combined daily capacity of the two desalination plants will be 590,000 cu/m. These plants are scheduled to commence providing electricity and water in 2017.
