Dubai, UAE: HE Saeed Mohammed Al Tayer, MD & CEO of Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA), inspected the third phase of K-Station at the Jebel Ali Power & Desalination Complex, which is one of the main pillars that provide Dubai with reliable, efficient, and high-quality electricity and water.
During the visit, Al Tayer was accompanied by Nasser Lootah, Executive Vice President of Generation, Mansoor Al Suwaidi, Vice President for Projects at DEWA, and Youssef Al Hashimi, Project Manager.
Al Tayer was briefed on the progress of the project, which is 35% complete. In the civil construction works, 524 out of 540 piling structures were completed. The concrete base casting of the first gas turbine was completed, while the casting for the second gas turbine is being prepared. The MD & CEO emphasised the need to adhere to the highest standards of health, safety, and quality in the project, and complete it according to schedule.
DEWA awarded the AED 802-million contract for the third phase of K-Station to Spanish company Duro Felguera. The project includes the supply, installation, testing, and launch of two F-type gas turbines from Siemens AG that will produce 590 megawatts (MW) at 50 degrees centigrade. The turbines are planned to be operational by Q2 2020.
K-Station uses gas turbines to generate power and is one of DEWA’s main projects to meet the increasing demand for electricity. Remotely operated, the station is fully-automated and features state-of-the-art technologies and control systems as well as the latest operating technologies that minimise emissions, as K-Station uses natural gas.
The current generation capacity of K-Station is 948MW. After the completion of the third phase, 590MW will be added, bringing the station’s total production capacity to 1,538MW.
