Emirates Water & Electricity Company (EWEC), a subsidiary of Abu Dhabi Power Corporation, has received six bids for an independent power project in Fujairah.
The package for the 2.4GW Fujairah F3 facility covers equity, development, financing, construction, operations, and maintenance of a combined cycle gas turbine (CCGT) plant.
The successful bidder will be announced in Q1 2020 following a technical and commercial analysis.
EWEC CEO Othman Al Ali said: “This tender fits into an ambitious ongoing program that includes an ongoing invitation to bid for a 2GW solar power plant in Al Dhafra, and the project execution of a 200 MIGD reverse osmosis plant in Taweelah - both located in Abu Dhabi, and considered the largest in the world.
“These projects, all initiated this year, support our vision to invest in more efficient sources of energy that help improve the sustainability of the water and electricity sector.”
