French utility giant Engie said January 30, 2017, it has been awarded the contract, and achieved financial closing, for the greenfield co-generation Fadhili independent power project (IPP) in eastern Saudi Arabia.
Planned to be built about 50km northwest of Jubail Industrial City in the east of Saudi Arabia, the 1,507 MW Fadhili combined cycled gas power plant will be one of the most efficient cogeneration plant in the country.
The greenfield project is expected to produce 1,447 tons per hour of steam and 768.8 tons per hour of feed water.
Electricity produced from the facility will be sold to Saudi Electricity Company (SEC) under 20-year purchase agreement.
Additionally, Saudi Aramco will purchase steam and feed water generated by the facility under a separate 20-year agreement.
Engie CEO Isabelle Kocher said: «The Fadhili project is in line with our strategy that aims at concentrating on low CO2 activities via renewable energies and gas for power generation.»
Siemens will be responsible for the supply of gas turbines for the project, which is scheduled to be commissioned by the end of 2019.
The Siemens’ technology is expected to ensure that the power plant meets the stringent emission requirements.
In Saudi Arabia, Engie currently has 6GW of gross installed power capacity and 666,000 cubic meters of gross desalination water production capacity.
