South China Morning Post published this video item, entitled “China-built clean coal-fired power plant in Dubai completed” – below is their description.
Chinese companies completed construction of the Hassyan Power Plant on May 16, 2022. The Dubai plant, the Middle East’s first clean coal-fired facility, is a major project under China’s trade initiative to link economies into a China-centred trading network, the Belt and Road Initiative. The 2,400 megawatt power plant is expected to generate 20 percent of Dubai’s energy. The United Arab Emirates announced that the US$3.4 billion coal plant will eventually transition to natural gas as part of the UAE’s 2050 net-zero carbon pledge.
