Tadweer’s five contracts awarded at the World Future Energy Summit took the total value of deals agreed at the four-day Abu Dhabi event to $10.5bn (AED38.5bn).

A consortium led by Masdar and French energy giant EDF struck one of the landmark deals at the summit, after winning a tender to build a $500m (SAR1.9bn) wind farm in Saudi Arabia.

The Dumat Al Jandal wind power plant in Al Jouf, located in the north of the kingdom, will produce 400 MW of power, generating energy for approximately 70,000 homes in Saudi Arabia, with its construction expected to create 1,000 jobs.
