Maaden power plant award due in August

21 July 2008

Saudi Arabian Mining Company (Maaden) will hold clarification meetings with the two bidders for the Ras al-Zour captive power plant project on 28 and 29 July.

The bidders for the lump-sum turnkey engineering, procurement and construction contract are Harbin Power Engineering Company and South Korea’s Hyundai Heavy Industries.

An award is expected to be made by the end of August. The companies submitted their bids on 31 May.

The successful bidder will build a 2,400MW power plant and a 3.4 million-gallon-a-day reverse-osmosis desalination plant under the 54-month contract.

The $3bn oil-fired captive power plant will serve an integrated aluminium complex at Ras al-Zour on the Gulf coast. Maaden and Canada's Alcan are the clients (MEED 2:6:08).
