The revolving credit facility by China Construction Bank (DIFC Branch) is an outcome of the ongoing collaboration between ACWA Power and Chinese entities, boosting our near-term liquidity and funding flexibility as we pursue strategic growth opportunities,” said ACWA Power CFO Abdulhameed Al Muhaidib.

“Most importantly, it goes to show the confidence that financiers have in our business performance and in our ability to deliver large-scale projects of transformative social and economic value,” he added.  

ACWA Power and the Bank started collaborations in 2016 with the financing for the 2,400-megawatt (MW) Hassyan power plant in the United Arab Emirates, the 485MW Zarqa gas power plant in Jordan, and the 1,500MW Sidarya combined cycle gas turbine power plant in Uzbekistan.
