The 2,400MW Hassyan clean coal power station is an ultra-supercritical (USC) power plant project being developed in Saih Shuaib, Dubai, United Arab Emirates (UAE). Upon completion, the project is set to be the first coal-based power plant in the region.
Construction of the $3.4bn power plant commenced in November 2016. It will comprise four units of 600MW each. The units are expected to start operations in March of 2020, 2021, 2022 and 2023.
Hassyan Energy Company, which is a joint venture between Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA, 51%) and the consortium of ACWA Power, Harbin Electric and the Silk Road Fund (49%), is the project developer.
The project supports the Dubai Clean Energy Strategy 2050, which is aimed at producing environment-friendly energy. The program aims to produce 25% of energy from solar power, 7% from nuclear power, 7% from clean coal and the remaining 61% from gas by 2030.
The power plant is expected to produce sufficient electricity to power approximately 250.000 households.
