Trio will provide a variety of advisory services on the solar project
The Oman Power and Water Procurement Company (OPWP) has appointed international consultants to work on a large-scale solar independent power project (IPP) within the country. The consortium comprises Fichtner, Synergy Consulting and DLA Piper.
As per the terms of the contract, Fichtner will deliver technical advisory services, DLA Piper will be called upon for legal services and Synergy Consulting will be responsible for financial advisory services.
The project will be developed on a Build-Own-Operate (BOO) model, which has been the case for all of the privately developed power projects currently in operation in Oman.
The consortium of companies will advise OPWP on a number of aspects related to the project, including preparing the groundwork and tendering documents for the competitive process, leading up to implementation of the power generation facility.
The consultants will also be responsible for advising Oman Power and Water Procurement on a suitable location for the solar project. Thus far, Ibri in the Dhahirah Governorate, as well as Manah and Adam in the Al Dakhiliyah Governorate, have been suggested as the ideal sites for setting up the new power generation facility.
