Fujairah Water and Electricity Generation Complex

The Fujairah Water and Electricity Generation Complex is located approximately 24 kilometres from Fujairah and approximately 300 kilometres Northeast of Abu Dhabi. 

The Fujairah F1 Power and Water Plant is a combined-cycle natural gas-fired power plant and hybrid multi-stage flash and reverse osmosis (RO) desalination plant. The hybrid desalination plant is made up of five MSF desalination units each with 12.5 million imperial gallons per day capacity, supplied by Doosan, and an RO plant supplied by Degremont. At the time of construction, the plant was the first hybrid desalination plant in the Middle East. Abu Dhabi National Energy Company (TAQA) owns 60 per cent of the plant with Sembcorp holding 40 per cent.

The Fujairah F2 combined-cycle power plant uses GE GT26B gas turbines and supplementary fired heat recovery steam generators. For water desalination, the plant uses multi-effect distillation with Sidem 8.5 million imperial gallons per day units and RO technology. TAQA owns 60 per cent of the plant with ENGIE and Marubeni each holding 20 per cent.

The complex will also see the development of Fujairah F3, a Combined Cycle Gas Turbine (CCGT) which will be the largest independent thermal power plant in the UAE, generating up to 2.4 gigawatts (GW) of electricity. The project will contribute to the stable supply of power, essential to the economic development of the emirate of Fujairah.
