HHI finishes major plant in Bahrain
Korea’s largest heavy industry company said yesterday it held a ceremony to mark the completion of a $1.7 billion complex consisting of a thermal power plant and a desalination plant in Al Dur, 24 miles south of the capital Manama, on Monday night local time. Bahraini King Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa and high-ranking officials of the government attended the ceremony.
The gas-fired combined-cycle power plant has a capacity of 1,245 megawatts. The desalination plant is capable of producing 218,000 cubic meters (285,133 cubic yards) of usable water a day.
The company said the figures are equivalent to about 40 percent of the country’s total power consumption and 12 percent of daily water use.
Hyundai Heavy won an engineering, procurement and construction contract from Al Dur Power & Water Company. “The successful completion of the Al Dur plant is a new demonstration of HHI’s outstanding construction and execution capabilities,” said Cheon Yin-su, a head of the company’s plant business.
HHI is currently constructing a 1,750 megawatts gas-fired combined-cycle power plant in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.
