Abu Dhabi-based renewable energy company Masdar has signed an engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contract with a global consortium comprising US-based General Electric and Spain-based TSK Electronica Y Electricidad to build the Dhofar Wind Power Project in Oman. This will be the first large-scale wind farm in Oman.

Funds for the wind farm have been provided by the Abu Dhabi Fund for Development.
