World's largest gas power plant completed in Saudi Arabia

Hyundai Heavy Industries has completed construction of the world's largest gas-fired power plant in Saudi Arabia.
 
Constructed as part of a $2.7 billion contract for a power and desalination facility in the Saudi Arabia, the 2750-megawatts (MW) Jubail was contracted by state-run company Marafiq back in 2007 and was won by a consortium including Hyundai Heavy Industries, GE and French firm Sidem, according to Utilities Middle East.
 
At 2750 MW, the $1.1 billion plant’s generating capacity will form almost 10 per cent of Saudi Arabia’s total power output.
