HE Saeed Mohammed Al Tayer, MD & CEO of DEWA said the agreement aims to increase energy production, improve efficiency and reduce carbon emissions in the future. It also supports efforts to achieve the Dubai Carbon Abatement Strategy, as well as improving DEWA’s production efficiency, which increased by 28.86% between 2006 and 2017.
“At DEWA, we work in accordance with the highest international standards and practices. Our strategic priorities are energy supply security and to make Dubai a role model for the efficiency and reliability of energy and water,” added Al Tayer.
The agreement includes Advanced Gas Path techniques and applications for reducing nitrogen oxides (DLN1). The three GE 9E gas turbines at E Station in the Jebel Ali Power Station were installed in 1989 and were the first large gas turbines to be installed at Jebel Ali.
Nasser Lootah, Executive Vice President of Generation (Power and Water) at DEWA said:
“Under this new agreement, the project will be implemented from 2019 to 2021. The necessary improvements will be made to extend the life cycle of the gas turbines for an additional 12 years, increase production, improve efficiency and reduce emissions from these turbines.”
