MHPS secured the contract on a full turnkey basis in a consortium with an affiliate of Elsewedy Electric, an integrated energy and infrastructure solution provider in the Middle East and Africa.

MHPS has agreed to supply the core equipment for the GTCC power plant. The equipment will include two gas turbines, one steam turbine, three generators and two heat recovery steam generators (HRSG).

Elsewedy Electric will provide engineering service, procure the balance of the plant and other equipment besides undertaking construction work at the site.

“The power plant is expected to commence operations in mid-2021 and will be the first in Sharjah to draw export loan support from Japan’s export credit agency”

The power plant is expected to commence operations in mid-2021 and will be the first in Sharjah to draw export loan support from Japan’s export credit agency (ECA).

Located in the coastal city of Layyah, the project is currently underway by the Sharjah Electricity & Water Authority (SEWA) and will be equipped with two M701F turbines that will be fired by natural gas.

Due to Sharjah’s economic development, SEWA has initiated a programme that aims to increase power output as well as enhance efficiency by embracing power generation facilities. The expansion of the Al Layyah power plant is to be part of this programme.

Currently, SEWA operates a 2,850MW power plant in Sharjah. This facility is fired by natural gas and oil.

Besides supplying electric power, the facility uses the steam created on-site to convert seawater to fresh water. SEWA supplies this fresh water within the emirate.

In February this year, MHPS secured a gas turbine supply contract from Chinese steelmaker Maanshan Iron & Steel Company.
