The original deal was signed in 2007 by Qatar General Electricity & Water Corporation (Kahramaa), Qatar Electricity & Water Company (QEWC) and Chubu.

Under the deal, Chubu has set up joint working groups with Kahramaa and QEWC to advise on power generation and transmission issues, including safety, fault detection and analysis, load forecasting and crisis management.

Chubu has also provided training for Qatari students.

Together with the UK’s International Power, Chubu was the developer on the Ras Laffan B independent water and power project. The company is Japan’s third largest power utility.
