Desalination and Purification for AL LAYYAH1026 MW Combined Cycle Power Plant, Sharjah, UAE

Date:   2018

Client: Sharjah Electricity & Water Authority

Consortium with MHPS

We have been awarded the Engineering, Procurement, and Construction of Layyah co-generation plant.

The plant is located on the Arabian Gulf shore, within the existing Layyah Power Plant, next to Khaled Seaport, in the State of Sharjah, UAE.
