Sembcorp Celebrates the Completion of an Expansion to its Fujairah Power and Desalination Plant

June 05, 2009

Sembcorp celebrated the successful completion of an expansion to its power and desalination plant in Fujairah, UAE, boosting its power capacity by over 40%, from 535 megawatts to 760 megawatts. This represented a significant milestone in the development of Sembcorp’s power and water business in the Middle East, one of its key target markets.

With this, Sembcorp’s Fujairah plant - which is also one the largest desalination plants in the world with a capacity of 100 million imperial gallons per day - is positioned as a major facility supplying power and water to meet the rising needs of the region. This project also strengthens Sembcorp’s standing as a Singapore company which has established itself as a successful owner and operator of global power and water facilities.

This milestone was celebrated at a dinner attended by Hassan Al Nassay, Chairman of Emirates Sembcorp Power and Water Company (Sembcorp’s Middle East joint venture), as well as Tang Kin Fei, Sembcorp Industries’ Group President & CEO. Also present at the celebrations were several members of the boards of Sembcorp as well as Emirates Sembcorp Power and Water Company.

Note to Editors:

Following a recent company rebrand, please refer to the company as “Sembcorp” (with “S” in upper case and “c” in lower case), or “Sembcorp Industries” in full. Please also note that “Sembcorp” is not an abbreviation of “Sembawang Corporation” but a brandname in itself, and it is therefore incorrect to refer to our company as “Sembawang”, “Sembawang Corporation” or similar.
