Our History

Established in 1977 in Abu Dhabi, UAE, Hydropower Energy and General Construction has undergone several transformations over the years and is recognized today as a market leader.

Initially named Nael Energy & General Enterprises, since its founding, the business has served the energy and infrastructure industry as a contractor providing various services.

With a focus on water and power projects and an ever-expanding infrastructure division, the Company has historically supported Abu Dhabi's continued growth and development.

In 2017, a management buyout resulted in the Company's name change to Hydropower Energy and General Construction, followed by a radical restructuring process.

This culminated in a new operational structure that maintained the Company's expertise, high standards, and experience.

Today, the Company boasts a highly successful and innovative management structure.
