Dubai's state utility has revealed that it has extended the bid deadline for the first phase of a clean-coal power project in the emirate.

In response to requests received from bidders, Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA) said it has extended the bid deadline for the Hassyan Clean Coal Power Project by a further two months.

Bidders requested the extension to provide more time with which to make their bids fully-compliant with DEWA's requirements, DEWA said in a statement, adding that the new bid submission is March 26 2015.

"This IPP-based clean coal project is a key step in the implementation of the energy diversification strategy formulated by the Dubai Supreme Council of Energy, to introduce clean coal based electricity generation into Dubai's energy mix," said Saeed Mohammed Al Tayer, managing director and CEO of DEWA.

"Through such ground-breaking projects, DEWA will continue to complete energy projects that also contribute to meeting Dubai's growing energy requirements and support the sustainable growth of the emirate," he added.

DEWA released the tender to qualified bidders on July 22. The first phase of the project has a capacity of 1,200 MW using coal, and is expected to be operational by 2020.
