Doosan Babcock secures Taweelah B maintenance deal
The eight-year contract includes technical support, parts and equipment provision, and repair and maintenance services at Abu Dhabi’s largest power and water plant
Energy engineering specialist Doosan Babcock has signed a long term maintenance agreement (LTMA) with Taweelah Asia power company (TAPCO) to provide essential maintenance and technical support services to Abu Dhabi’s Taweelah B power and water desalination plant.
The eight-year contract includes technical support, parts and equipment provision, and repair and maintenance services at Abu Dhabi’s largest power and water plant, and the second largest facility of its kind in the UAE.
Doosan Babcock beat off stiff competition to secure the contract.
It will ensure the optimum performance of six thermal boiler units, five heat recovery steam generators (HRSG), 13 multi-stage flashing (MSF) water desalination units and 12 potable water tanks.
“We are ideally placed to help Taweelah B continue to provide a secure source of water and power for the residents of Abu Dhabi,” said Steve Hunt, VP Global Service, Doosan Babcock.
Although the entire scope of work will be led by Doosan Babcock, other Doosan group subsidiaries including Doosan heavy industries & construction’s water business group and Doosan engineering & construction will provide technical expertise
The contract also represents a significant strategic step for Doosan Babcock’s growing business in UAE, which recently saw the opening of its specialist Middle East and North Africa (MENA) Technical Hub in Abu Dhabi, designed to provide a range of specialist engineering services to assist customers in the power, water, oil and gas, petrochemical and industrial sectors maintain and extend the life of their plant.
