The Qatar Fund for Development (QFFD) has announced the completion of the electric power station in Yemen, which was financed by a grant of the State of Qatar. The station in Aden has commenced the experimental operation and has been connected to the electrical grid.

The step comes within the framework of the State of Qatar’s vital and effective role in supporting the Yemeni people in the fields of development, infrastructure, humanitarian and relief, as well as to alleviate the suffering of the people in Aden from frequent electricity cuts and high temperatures. This is in addition to providing Aden with two mobile power units with a capacity of 61 MW and training Yemeni cadres to operate and maintain these units.

The Qatar Electric Power Plant and mobile power units are expected to provide electricity to many vital facilities such as hospitals and schools, as well as thousands of homes.

QFFD hopes that the station will ease the suffering of the Yemeni people and help them overcome the difficult conditions they have been experiencing for several years.
In December, the Qatar Fund for Development has signed an agreement with the General Electricity Corporation of Yemen, in cooperation with Nebras Energy Company, to supply Aden with 61 MW of mobile power units.
