A US$ 600 million (AED 2.2 BN) waste heat recovery project will revolutionize power and water generation at ADNOC's General Utilities Plant in Ruwais. By using heat generated at the site to propel two new steam-powered turbines, ADNOC will be able to produce an additional 62,400 cubic meters of distillate water per day and 230 megawatts of power.

Upon completion in 2023, the innovation will increase the thermal efficiency of the site by nearly 30% and reduce dependence on the national grid. The General Utilities Plant provides electricity and water to the entire Ruwais industrial complex. It is vital to the ongoing expansion of Ruwais as part of ADNOC's 2030 smart growth strategy.
