Near the city of Dubai a gas turbine and desalination station is presently being commissioned and has already partly been taken over by the client.

This project has been carried out within 34 months from the award of the order to the acceptance by the client by an international consortium.

Upon its completion the plant will produce 60 million gallons of drinking water per day and will have an electric capacity of 457 MW.

The paper presents the technical concept of steam generators of relatively big capacity and very low steam pressures for the production of saturated steam for two designs, i.e. an oil and gas fired self-supporting steam generator and a waste heat recovery boiler behind a gas turbine including a very powerful supplementary firing system.
