Shuweihat S1 Independent Power and Desalination Plant

The Shuweihat S1 1500 MW combined cycle power plant is currently one of the world's largest combined power and water plant complexes, delivering 1500 MW of power to the emirate of Abu Dhabi.

The plant consists of five Siemens v94.3A gas turbines, two 251 MW steam turbines, seven electrical generators and all the ancillary systems. It is linked to a seawater desalination facility which is supplied with steam from the turbines.

This project was an Independent Water and Power Project commissioned on a Build Operate transfer (BOT) basis.
