DEWA completes 93% of 4th phase of H-Station

The major power plant project in Al Aweer is set to be operational by Q1 2023

Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA) has completed 93% of the 829MW 4th phase of the H-Station power plant in Al Aweer, with investments totaling US $300mn.

This phase will increase the Al Aweer Power Station Complex’s total capacity to 2,825MW, given climate conditions of 50-degrees Celsius and 30% relative humidity. Key testing and commissioning operations have now begun and the project is expected to be operational in Q1, 2023.

Saeed Mohammed Al Tayer, MD & CEO of DEWA said that this project is one of DEWA’s key projects to meet the reserve margin criterion set for peak electricity demand in Dubai. It will add to DEWA’s current installed capacity of 14,317 MW of electricity.

In late September 2022, DEWA called for EoIs for a major solar power project and, in mid October 2022, DEWA’s Jebel Ali complex won a Guinness World Record title.

He commented, “We work in line with the vision and directives of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, to provide a robust infrastructure that keeps pace with rapid developments in Dubai and the increasing demand for electricity and water in the emirate according to the highest standards of quality, efficiency, reliability and availability. This contributes to enhancing the sustainable development in its social, economic, and environmental aspects.”

Nasser Lootah, Executive Vice President of Generation (Power & Water) Division at DEWA explained that the station is equipped with the latest systems and technologies to reduce emissions to the minimum. He noted that the project’s work is progressing according to schedule, while maintaining the highest levels of health, safety, quality, and efficiency.

The project is being implemented by a consortium comprising Siemens Energy and Elsewedy Power. It includes supplying, installing, testing, and commissioning three Siemens gas turbines with a total capacity of 829MW.

In late November 2022, DEWA said that its Hatta reservoir project was more than 75% complete.

The project also includes installing sub devices and equipment from major international companies, including natural gas compressors from Germany’s MAN and a natural gas treatment station from Dutch company Petrogas.
