This cutting-edge technology will further align us with the goals of the Kingdom’s Economic Vision 2030.”

    The deal was signed by Alba's Chief Executive Officer, Tim Murray and Chief Financial Officer of GE, Todd Smith. The MoU was signed during a reception organised by the Bahrain Economic Development Board (EDB) in collaboration with American Chamber of Commerce and the U.S.-Bahrain Business Council in Washington DC

    GE and GAMA Consortium is the Engineering, Procurement and Construction (EPC) contractor for its Power Station (PS 5).
