With the whole world caught up in the green fever, could the Middle East be left far behind. Utico Middle East in association with Shanghai Electric, the world's largest coal power company, is planning to establish a Dh1.5 bn ($408m) power plant in Ras Al Khaimah. Richard Menezes, Managing Director and Executive Vice Chairman of Utico Middle East notes, "the project will enable Ras Al Khaimah to meet its utility requirements and showcase the emirate's commitment towards clean, green energy resources." The facility, dubbed the world's greenest coal-fired power plant, will be located in the RAK Maritime City, where power and water demand is growing fast. It will utilise 100 per cent carbon capture technology as nominal design capacity and 80 per cent at operational point. The project, supported by the government, will aid development and economic growth in the region. It is likely to complete in 2015 and generate 270 MW of power. Here's hoping for a more power'ful future.
