U.A.E. Takes New Korea Path

Links Being Forged
The links between the U.A.E. and South Korea have been strengthened this week

Korea Assists Fujairah With Water
In 2005, South Korea’s Doosan Heavy Industries and Construction Company Ltd. completed what is now a successful desalination plant in Fujairah which supplies 45,000 tons of fresh water every day, sufficient to support 1.2 million people.

Korea Giving Light and Power to Dubai
The Doosan Company has this week won the contract to build a power generation plant in Jebel Ali, thirty-five kilometres south-west of Dubai, due to be switched on in 2010.

Vision to be Number One
Established in 1962, the Doosan Heavy Industries and Construction Company has exported facilities to China, USA, Taiwan, Iran and India. It is already a leader but it is boldly declaring its aim to be the No. 1 Global Company in its business of power generation and desalination plants.
