Bechtel-led Team Wins Abu Dhabi Power And Water Project
The fast-track project will be completed in 30 months, with first power being delivered via simple cycle operation in June 1999. Combined-cycle power and the desalination units are scheduled to go into operation in August 2000.
The contract represents Bechtel's first power plant in the United Arab Emirates, although the company has long been active in the UAE's oil and gas sector, and in its buildings and infrastructure arena.
