Hyundai E&C marked another milestone in the construction of overseas power plants with its successful completion of the construction of Qatar’s largest power plant. On May 31, Hyundai E&C held a building dedication ceremony for the Ras Laffan power plant in Ras Laffan Industrial City, 80 kilometers north of the country’s capital Doha. Hyundai E&C Vice Chairman Kim Chang-hee, the ruling Emir Hamad bin Khalifa Al- Thani, Deputy Prime Minister Abdullah bin Hamad Al- Attiyah and other Qatari government officials participated in the ceremony, showing their high interest in the newly built power plant. Performed prior to the ceremony under the theme of electricity and water, a live show received enthusiastic response from Qatari participants. The Ras Laffan combinedcycle power plant is designed to generate electricity based on natural gas and has a seawater desalination plant that condenses seawater to produce drinking water. The power plant is expected to produce about 286,000 tons of drinking water for 800,000 people and to generate 2,730 MW electricity which accounts for about 30 percent of the electricity generated by power generation facilities in Qatar. The construction took 34.5 months to be completed after it began in May 2008. The successful completion will serve as an opportunity for Korea’s primary builder to achieve worldwide recognition once again for its technological prowess and construction capability in the construction of power plants.
