Oman Power and Water Procurement Company (OPWP) says it plans to launch a wind resource assessment campaign. In line with this, utilities company has floated tenders asking for proposals from third parties to carry out the research. The last date for submissions is November 26 of this year.
As per OPWP, the campaign will be conducted across the country in multiple locations and the tender includes the provision of equipment/sensors, installation, operation and maintenance and data validation. The research findings will be used to support the future development of wind power projects in Oman.
In recent months, Oman has been actively encouraging the development and use of non-conventional energy sources, including solar and wind power. The national programme for enhancing diversification, Tanfeedh, calls for a 10% contribution from renewable energy projects in the total power mix within ten years.
The country’s renewable energy projects aim to generate around three gigawatts of power – 2.5 gigawatts from solar and 0.5 gigawatts from wind plants.
