The UAE’s first clean coal-fired power plant in the emirate of Ras Al Khaimah is to be developed through a collaboration between Shanghai Electric and Utico Middle East.
An expected investment of $408m is expected in the 270 MW project, which should be completed by 2015.
Utico MD Richard Menezes told Gulf News "Clean coal-fired energy is acknowledged to be even cleaner and greener than gas-reliant energy.
By deploying Shanghai Electric's superior energy-efficient and tried and proven technology to for the plant, we are confident of reducing Flue Gas Desulphurisation, carbon dioxide emissions almost to zero, and setting the benchmark for cleaner energy to the world and not only to the UAE," Menezes added.
