Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA) has awarded RWE Power International ME the contract to conduct a comprehensive study on the uses of all by-products of the 2,400 megawatt Hassyan power plant.

RWE was awarded the contract to study the use of clean coal ash in cement and building materials industries based on local and international standards.

The research is expected to help the Dubai economy by providing better quality raw materials at lower prices.

The Hassyan clean coal power plant will use ultra-supercritical technology in its operations. 

A build-own-operate (BOO) model has been deployed for Hassyan's development. 

A consortium of Harbin Electrical International and Acwa Power was picked by DEWA as preferred bidders for the project's first phase. 

Saeed Mohammed Al Tayer, managing director and CEO of DEWA, said: "The move demonstrates DEWA’s continuing efforts to help preserve the environment while securing diversified energy sources for the future.

"This study will help us to maximise the use of by-products from the power plant, while maintaining international standards of end products."
