Fujairah is short on power.
There are many new apartment towers that are not in use because they are waiting for a power supply.
Some businesses and householders have resorted to using diesel generators for their daily use.
Power Supply On Line
A report by Proactive Investors (UK) about international power trends had this final paragraph that will delight readers in Fujairah:
“In the UAE, the construction programme for the 2,000 MW Fujairah F2 project is well underway. All five GT26 gas turbines are now in place, and the project is on schedule to reach full commercial operation in 2010.”
