UAE Signs $100 Million Deal for Power Plant in Yemen’s Aden

ADEN, Yemen – The United Arab Emirates (UAE) has signed a deal to build a $100 million (Dh367.3m) power plant in Yemen’s southern city of Aden, The National said Wednesday.
The agreement was signed at the headquarters of the Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan Foundation for Humanitarian Works with Yemen’s Ministry of Electricity.
Ahmed Juma Al Zaabi, Minister of Federal Supreme Council at the Ministry of Presidential Affairs, and Vice President of the Khalifa Humanitarian Foundation, said the project reflects the historic ties between the two countries and the UAE’s intent to stand by Yemen.
The UAE and Yemen face a shared challenge to “rebuild state institutions and face catastrophic economic and humanitarian consequences,” he said.
The deal was agreed during Yemeni Prime Minister Dr Maeen Abdulmalik’s visit to Abu Dhabi as a part of the UAE’s efforts to support Yemen’s energy infrastructure. A gas turbine with a power network, due to be operational by the end of 2019, will produce approximately 120 megawatts of electricity for 2.5 million Yemenis.
It is one of the largest projects planned by the Khalifa Humanitarian Foundation in Yemen, whose work also includes building schools and hospitals in liberated parts of the war-torn country.
Mr Abdulmalik visited Wahat Al Karama, Abu Dhabi’s monument to fallen soldiers, on Tuesday, in which he wrote in the visitor’s log of his respect for Emiratis who gave their lives for the country.
