Germany’s Siemens and Korea’s Daewoo Engineering and Construction have handed over the 1.6GW Shuweihat S3 gas-fired combined cycle power plant for commercial operation by independent power producer (IPP) Shuweihat Asia Power Company (Sapco).
The completion of Shuweihat S3 takes the total generating capacity available to state utility Abu Dhabi Water and Electricity Company (ADWEC) to 15.5GW (see table).
Sapco is an operating company formed by Japan’s Sumitomo, Korea Electric Power Corporation (Kepco) and the Abu Dhabi Water and Electricity Authority (ADWEA, for which ADWEC is the sole buyer of electricity and water). Sapco developed Shuweihat S3 at a cost of $1.5bn, under a 25-year build-own operate agreement with ADWEA. Construction started in March 2011 (MEES, 21 February 2011).
