The contest to build the Sohar aluminium power island has narrowed, after the client invited two bidders to attend meetings in mid-September. South Korea’s Doosan Heavy Industries & Construction Companyand Paris-based Alstom Powerwere the low bidders for the estimated $450 million engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contract when about five bids were submitted in July. The smelter project is being promoted by Sohar Aluminium Company, a joint venture of Oman Oil Company (OOC), Abu Dhabi Water & Electricity Authority and Canada’s Alcan (MEED 5:8:05).
