Abu Dhabi's Shuweihat 2 (S2) power and water plant plans to price a project bond worth up to $825 million on Thursday, arranging banks said.

S2 is 54 percent owned by Abu Dhabi National Energy company (TAQA). Early price talk for the bond, which matures in 2036 was set in the 6.25 percent area.

The deal is open to U.S. institutional investors due to its 144 a-compliant structure, and will be issued as a bond by Ruwais Power Co.

Last month, the company held a series of investor meetings ahead of a potential issue, which coincided with significant volatility in global fixed income markets.

BNP Paribas, Citigroup Inc., HSBC Holdings, Mitsubishi UFJ Securities, National Bank of Abu Dhabi and Standard Chartered are mandated bookrunners on the transaction.
