His Highness was familiarised with the specifics of the designs created by architecture students at the University of Sharjah’s Faculty of Engineering. The Department of Architecture students presented 17 creative architectural concepts for the Sharjah Oasis for Technology and Innovation headquarters’ general layout.

Ruler of Sharjah visits 1.8 GW Hamriyah IPP: His Highness Dr Sheikh Sultan Bin Mohammed Al Qasimi, UAE Supreme Council Member and Ruler of Sharjah, visited the under construction 1.8 gigawatts (GW) Hamriyah Independent Power Plant (IPP) for a tour of the facility and an overview of the progress made to date on the project.

Co-developers GE Energy Financial Services and Japan’s Sumitomo Corporation signed an approximately 25 years power purchase agreement (PPA) with the Sharjah Electricity, Water and Gas Authority (SEWA) in 2018 to develop, build and operate the plant. Following financial close in 2019, co-developers along with Shikoku Electric Power Company and Sharjah Asset Management, the investment arm of the Sharjah Government, formed a joint venture company — SHIPCO — to build, own and operate the project, which is the first independent combined cycle power plant in Sharjah. GE Gas Power is providing turnkey engineering, construction and procurement (EPC) services and supplying three 9HA.01 gas turbines, six generators and three heat recovery steam generators (HRSGs) for the facility. It will also provide parts, repairs and maintenance services for power generation assets at the site for approximately 25 years.

“We are grateful for the guidance and support of His Highness Dr Sheikh Sultan Bin Mohammed Al Qasimi and committed to achieving SEWA’s 2030 Roadmap to boost the installed power generation capacity in Sharjah to 4,600 megawatts,” said Saeed Sultan Al Suwaidi, Chairman of SEWA. “The Hamriyah IPP is a key component to meeting this goal and is expected to generate up to almost 40 per cent of Sharjah’s power output when it is complete.” Omar Al Mulla, Chairman of SHIPCO, said, “We are delighted to develop a project that will enhance Sharjah’s energy independence and set a new standard for the region’s utilities sector.
