ILF Consulting Engineers to advise on 50MW renewables project

Oman’s Rural Area Electricity Company (Raeco) has awarded a contract for consulting and engineering services on the Harweel wind farm to Austria’s ILF Consulting Engineers.

The $200m project is funded by Abu Dhabi’s Masdar.

It will involve up to 25 turbines, with a capacity of 50MW, as well as a 132kV overhead transmission line.

Prequalification for the engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contract took place in late 2014, and a tender is expected in 2015.

The facility is scheduled to come online in May 2017, and will be the first utility-scale wind farm in the GCC and the first renewables project in Oman.
