Taweelah Power and Desalination Plant was built in Abu Dhabi Emirate, United Arab Emirates in 1995. The capacity of the plant was increased in 1998. At present, it was decided to carry out the second phase of the capacity extension to satisfy the rapid urban and industrial developments in the emirate. A comprehensive study was carried out to investigate the increased recirculation of salinity and temperature from the plant outfall to the intake due to the proposed extension. The study was carried out using a 3-dimensional numerical flow model simulates the tidal flows and heat transport in the vicinity of the plant. Recirculation of temperature at the plant intake was also obtained from the available long-term seawater temperature measurements at the intake and in the ambient seawater. The resulting recirculation of seawater temperature from the measurements was compared with the model results.
