Alstom to work on DEWA’s clean coal power plant

Harbin Electricity International and ACWA Power, preferred bidder of Dubai Electricity and Water Authority’s (DEWA) Hassyan clean coal power plant in Dubai, has chosen Alstom as the lead EPC contractor.

The plant will be the first ultra-supercritical (USC) coal power plant in the Middle East. It will be operational by March 2021 with a net output of 1.200MW, representing a 12.5% boost of the Dubai current grid capacity.

Alstom will provide its popular ultra-supercritical technology which is boiler and steam turbine generator, and will have dual fuel capacity that is able to fire both sub-bituminous coal and natural gas as back up fuel.

The technology enables the power plant to run at a higher steam temperature and pressure than regular coal-fired plants in order to improve the plant efficiency and to decrease stack-emissions, particularly CO2 per unit of fuel burned. The power plant will produce sufficient electricity to power nearly 250’000 households in Dubai.
