Project will have a capacity of 230MW to 400MW with the winning bidder taking over the existing asset
A new tender is set to be floated by the Oman Power & Water Procurement Company (OPWP) for its next independent power project (IPP) at Salalah.
As part of the process, the company plans to issue a request for qualification by late September and a request for proposals by January 2013.
A report by MEED said the project will have a capacity of 230MW-400MW. The winning bidder would take over the existing asset and build the new power plant at the same site.
Last month, OPWP picked UK-based PricewaterhouseCoopers as financial adviser, DLA Piper as legal adviser, and Germany’s Fichtner as technical adviser.The project is planned to join two other independent projects in the Salalah system, which is separate from the main interconnected system (MIS) of Oman.
