Engie ... an impressive Gulf Industry Fair debut.

Engie 'powering' Bahrain's utility sector

MANAMA, February 7, 2018

Engie, a French multinational utility company, is a dominant player in Bahrain's utility sector supplying 90 per cent of the potable water and 70 per cent of the power in the kingdom, said a top official.

Engie has a number of sites and plants in Bahrain, stated Laura Thomson, the Head of Asset Management UAE, Middle East, South and Central Asia, Turkey, on the sidelines of the Gulf Industry Fair (GIF).

Engie, which is making its debut at the Northern Gulf’s leading specialist business-to-business (B2B) event for industrial products and services, said the Gulf Industry Fair was “very well attended, strategic and important for Bahrain.”

With a regional head office in Dubai, UAE, Engie has been active in the Gulf region for more than 30 years, generating 30 GW of power and around 5 million cu m of desalinated water.

It operates 22 power plants in the region including three in Bahrain, one in Kuwait, six in Oman, two in Qatar, four in Saudi Arabia and six in the UAE.
"It was very important to bring solar power to Bahrain as it is obviously an important energy resource within the region," observed Thomson.

“We are sponsor for a number of power suppliers in the region including Al Dur, Al Ezzel and Al Hidd in Bahrain,” she stated.

"We basically power Bahrain and provide the water,” she added.-TradeArabia News Service
