Doosan Heavy Industries Wins Power Plant Deal in Dubai

Doosan Heavy Industries & Construction has won a 1.07 trillion won ($1.13 billion) contract to build a power station in Dubai _ the largest ever power plant project won by a local company abroad.

Doosan said yesterday that it has signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with the Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA) on building a power-generation complex in Jebel Ali, about 35 kilometers southwest of Dubai.


The plant will have a capacity of 1,330 megawatts and its electricity will be provided throughout Dubai.

Doosan Heavy, one of the country’s leading power-generation contractors, said it will complete the construction by March 2010 in three phases _ engineering, procurement and construction.

In a statement, company Vice President Hong Sung-eun said, ``The fact that we have won this big order means the Middle East recognizes our technology.’’

He added that there is also the possibility that DEWA will ask Doosan Heavy to be in charge of the construction of a 1,200 megawatt power station at the end of 2007.

Doosan is the only company in the world that specializes in building large power plants and desalination plants on a turnkey basis.

With its know-how, the company hopes to win mega projects in the Middle East, the largest market for desalination and power plants.

The archetype of Doosan’s success is the Fujairah desalination plant located on the eastern coast of the United Arab Emirates. The plant alone supplies 450,000 tons of fresh water every day, enough to support some 1.2 million people.

Most of the potable water produced in the Fujairah plant travels some 200 kilometers south to the Al Ain region through a pipeline, and is used to water trees, plants and grass lawns there.

With the construction of the Palm Island, an artificial island, and rapid development of real estate in Dubai, the demand for electric power is expected to increase by 10.6 percent annually.
