Two firms bid for Ras al-Zour power plant

02 June 2008
Two companies have submitted bids for the 2,400MW Ras al-Zour captive power plant project.

The bidders for the lump sum turnkey engineering procurement and construction contract are China Harbour Engineering Company and South Korea’s Hyundai Heavy Industries (HHI). They submitted their bids on 31 May.

China Harbour plans to procure six 350MW turbines from its compatriot Harbin Turbine Company for the plant, while HHI would use four 600MW turbines from Siemens China. The 54-month long contract also includes a 3.4 million-gallon-a-day reverse osmosis desalination plant.

An award is expected by the end of July.

The $3bn oil-fired captive power plant will serve an integrated aluminium complex at Ras al-Zour on the Gulf coast. Saudi Arabian Mining Company (Maaden) and Canada's Alcan are the clients (MEED 12:2:08).
