US-based Powered Corporation has appointed US firms Longenecker & Associates and Lion Associates as consultants for its power plant projects in Yemen.

In September, Powered Corporation signed a deal with the Yemeni Government to construct plants to generate electricity and desalinated water using nuclear energy over the next 10 years.

The first part of the agreement involves the completion of a feasibility study for the first site.

Powered Corporation's role will then be to build and operate electrical generation plants in association with investment groups and other organisations experienced with nuclear power generation.

According to James Jeffrey, co-chairman and CEO of Powered Corporation, North & South America and Asia, the deal is the result of three year' worth of talks with Yemen's National Atomic Energy Commission (Natec).

"Yemen's future economic growth depends on resolving its power issue. We are determined to be a part of finding long-lasting, clean energy solutions for this country," he said.
