The Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (Dewa) this week announced the start of operational testing of the 829MW 4th phase of its Al Aweer (H-Station) power plant. The unit is well behind schedule, with Dewa having announced in November 2020 that it would be operational by end-2021 (MEES, 27 November 2020). Once fully operational in Q2, the new unit will bring installed capacity up to 16.54GW. Dewa has also installed substantial solar power capacity in recent years, which will account for 15.9% of the total once the new gas plant is running, down from 16.7% currently.
