Al-Toukhi bids low on Rafha

16 November 2002

Al-Toukhi Group is the low bidder at SR 237 million ($63.2 million) for the 50-60-MW expansion of Rafha power plant, which is situated close to the Iraqi border. Five local companies priced the work, which is one of four Saudi Electricity Company (SEC) generation enhancement projects now on the table (MEED 1:11:02).

The project will involve the installation of two 25-30-MW gas turbines at the plant, with the provision to install another. The contract also includes the installation of a 33-kV substation at the plant.

Three other SEC generation projects are on the table. They are the $200 million expansion of Jeddah's PP3, for which a tender is to be launched in late November; the expansion of Arar by four 20-30-MW turbines; and the expansion of Tabuk power plant by about 120 MW, for which four companies bid in late October.
