Fujairah F3 is a contract to build a 2,400 MW combined cycle power plant in Fujairah, a region located some 300 km northeast of Abu Dhabi. The power plant will, once complete, serve as a steady source of power for 380,000 homes in the northern region of the UAE.

 

Fujairah F3 is located in the northeastern part of the UAE, on the coast of the Gulf of Oman.

Under this contract valued at approximately 1.15 trillion won, Samsung C&T will function as the exclusive EPC contractor. The construction phase of the project is expected to complete in April 2023.

 

The key to Samsung C&T winning the Fujairah F3 contract lies with the company’s extensive experience in building many power plants throughout the Middle East. The company provided a complete array of EPC services on the UAE S2 project in 2009 and has since executed the Emal Phase 2 project in the UAE, the Qurayyah and Rabigh 2 IPP projects in Saudi Arabia, and the Umm Al Houl IWPP project in Qatar.

 

All of this experience successfully executing power plant projects throughout the Middle East also gave Samsung C&T unparalleled expertise working with world-class developers. In fact, Samsung C&T previously partnered up with Marubeni Corporation on the Jawa-1 project in Indonesia and is furthering this fruitful and effective partnership on this new Fujairah F3 project.

 

Samsung C&T is currently working on building a nuclear power plant in the UAE, a metro system in Saudi Arabia’s Riyadh, and a desalination plant in Qatar. The Fujairah F3 contract is sure to further solidify the company’s position as a global EPC player in the region.
