Bidding extended for second time on $3bn Saudi gas-solar plant

The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia has extended the deadline for proposals to develop a 3,780 RiyadhMW plant in Taliba by three months, the second time the deadline has been re-set.

Bid deadline for technical proposals has now been extended until 15th May by the Saudi Electricity Company (SEC).

The integrated solar combined-cycle plant will be one of the kingdom’s largest power generation facilities.

The initial deadline for technical bids was set 30 December 2015. The bid date has been extended to allow companies more time to work on bids, due to the large size and complicated nature of the project.

The plant will contain a combined-cycle capacity of 3,600 MW as well as a 180 MW solar component. It will be one of the largest generation facilities in the kingdom, and will cost upwards of $3bn to build.
