Italy’s Ansaldo has been awarded two contracts worth a total of about €600m ($669.7m) to provide turbines for the Ibri/Sohar 3 independent power project (IPP) in Oman.

For each of the two plants, Ansaldo will provide four gas turbines, four heat recovery steam generators , two steam turbines and six turbo generators to China’s Sepco 3, which is the EPC contractor for both plants.

MEED recently reported that a consortium led by Japan’s Mitsui and Saudi Arabia’s Acwa Power had signed the power purchase agreement (PPA) for the 3,150MW Ibri/Sohar 3 IPP.

The team signed the PPA on 1 March.

MEED reported in January that the project owner, Oman Power & Water Procurement Company (OPWP), had selected the Mitsui/Acwa consortium as preferred bidder for the scheme.

Mitsui has the majority share in the winning consortium, with 50.1 per cent ownership. Acwa Power holds 44.9 per cent and the local Dhofar International Development & Investment Holding the remaining 5 per cent.
