    Kahramaa, QEWC extend Ras Abu Fontas power plant operation agreement

    March 14, 2023 - Gulf Times


      The Qatar General Electricity and Water Corporation (Kahramaa) and the Qatar Electricity and Water Company (QEWC) on Monday signed an extension agreement for the operation of Ras Abu Fontas (BA) power plant at a ceremony under the patronage of HE the Minister of State for Energy Affairs Saad Sherida al-Kaabi. According to a Kahramaa statement, the agreement, which extends the current 20-year contract by an additional seven, is a significant achievement for both sides as they co-operate to achieve the best utilisation of Qatar's resources. It also underlines the strength of Kahramaa and QEWC as reliable suppliers and operators in the fields of electricity generation and water desalination. The Ras Abu Fontas (BA) power plant is one of six plants that form the Ras Abu Fontas Complex, inaugurated in 2002. Pursuant to the arrangement, QatarEnergy will continue to supply the natural gas required to operate the plant for the same period. Kahramaa will utilise the supplied electricity to meet the growing needs of Qatar and will have a higher level of flexibility in utilising the three gas turbines of the power plant. HE al-Kaabi said the agreement reflects the strong co-operation between Kahramaa and QEWC and aims at the optimal utilisation of the country's resources. "QatarEnergy will continue to play a vital role in supplying natural gas to all power and water projects. I would like to thank the management and staff of both Kahramaa and QEWC for their outstanding performance in securing Qatar's requirements for water and electricity," he said. Kahramaa president engineer Issa bin Hilal al-Kuwari said the close co-ordination with QEWC and QatarEnergy is critical for securing the country's energy and water needs that are essential for the economic growth and development of Qatar. QEWC managing director and general manager engineer Mohamed Nasser al-Hajri, said the company dedicates significant resources to address and meet the country's demand for electricity and water with high efficiency, in line with the development pillars of the Qatar National Vision 2030.
