Engie awarded Saudi cogeneration contract

Engie has been awarded the contract for the greenfield Fadhili independent power project in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, the most efficient cogeneration plant in the country.

Located in the east of Saudi Arabia, the Fadhili project is a combined cycled gas power plant with a capacity of 1,507 MW. It will produce the equivalent of the electricity consumption of 1.4 million people. It will also produce 1,447 tonnes per hour of steam and 768.8 tons per hour of feed water.

Saudi Electricity Company (SEC) will be the off-taker for electricity and Saudi Aramco for the steam and feed water under 20-year Purchase Agreements. ENGIE will have a 40 per cent equity ownership in the project company, SEC will hold 30 per cent and Saudi Aramco Power Holding Company (SAPHCO) 30 per cent.

The work will be carried out together with South Korean Doosan Heavy Industries & Construction Co. for Engineering, Procurement and Construction (EPC) and with Siemens for the gas turbines supply. The technology used will ensure that the stringent emission requirements imposed on the project (less than 9 ppm1 NOx) are respected. The scope of work will also include the construction of a 380 kV substation to be transferred to SEC in 2018 for ownership, operation and maintenance.

The commercial operation of the Fadhili plant is scheduled at the end of 2019. Total investment cost for the project is estimated to be US$ 1.2 billion.
