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.
