Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA) has awarded a Dh1.47bn ($400mn) contract to Germany’s Siemens to add 700MW of electricity generating capacity at its M-Station power and desalination plant in Jebel Ali. The expansion will take M-Station capacity to 2.7GW of electricity and 630,000 cmd of water.
