market for nongovernmental power and water producers, which is
expected to amount to $6 billion next year."

120,000-ton desalination unit in Oman will be delivered to Barka,
southwest of the capital Muscat, when they are completed in April
2009, Doosan said.

the UAE capital of Abu Dhabi, is slated for completion in May 2009.
