A consortium of ACWA Power and Harbin Electric has begun construction on the Hassyan clean coal power station in Dubai, UAE.
The facility, which will be delivered based on the independent power producer (IPP) procurement model, will have a capacity to generate 2,400MW of power.
The plant, to be the first-of-its-kind in the region, will use ultra-supercritical technology and will be fully-compliant with set international standards.
The project will be supported by a 25-year power purchase agreement between DEWA and the bidder.
The project will be designed to meet flue gas emission limits more stringently than emission limits in the Industrial Emissions Directive (IED) of the European Union and in the International Finance Corporation (IFC) Guidelines.
The power plant is set to commence operations by 2023.
