The station will have a total capacity of 2,811MW once the 815MW 4th phase is completed, the statement added.

Last June, the authority signed a 12-year Operating Plant Service Agreement (OPSA) with Siemens worth $463m (AED1.7bn).

The contract included provision of maintenance, spare parts and gas turbine rehabilitation for the second phase of K-Station at Jebel Ali Power and Desalination Station as well as for the third phase of H-Station at the Al Aweer Power Station.

DEWA currently has more than 4,000MW of projects under construction within the power sector.
