At least three local contractors are preparing to submit technical and commercial bids by 24 April for an estimated SR 250 million ($67 million) new power plant at Tabuk. The client, Saudi Electricity Company (SEC), is expected to award the work in mid-year.

The prospective bidders include, Al-Toukhi Contracting, Arabian Bemco Contracting and National Contracting Company (NCC). The scope of works calls for the supply and installation of two distillate-fired turbines, each with capacity of 65-75 MW, and the option to install an additional unit. The contract duration is 24 months. National Engineering Services Pakistan (Nespak) is the consultant on the scheme.

The project is one of a number of schemes to increase capacity in the kingdom. Bemco was recently awarded a $688 million contract to expand the PP9 power station in Riyadh (MEED 24:3:06). SEC is also understood to be drawing up plans to expand its PP3 plant, also located in the capital. A tender is expected later in the year.
