Financial close for US$200 million wind farm in Tasmania

The Renewable Energy Project Development Office (REPDO), of Saudi Arabia’s Ministry of Energy, Industry and Mineral Resources, has shortlisted qualified companies for round one of the National Renewable Energy Program (NREP).

The qualified bidders have been identified based on a clear set of criteria that ensures bidders are both experienced and capable of delivering utility scale renewable energy projects.

REPDO has qualified 27 companies for the 300MW solar PV project, and 24 companies for the 400MW wind farm. The qualified companies will proceed to the RFP stage as either ‘managing members’, ‘technical members’ – or both – based on their experience in delivering IPP projects of this scale.

Companies that have not qualified as either a managing or a technical member for round one, can still be involved in both projects as part of a consortium formed by a qualified managing member and technical member. The shortlisted companies have been selected from 128 total applications.

The minister will announce the next phase of the Kingdom’s first utility scale renewable energy projects during the inaugural Saudi Arabia Renewable Energy Investment Forum (SAREIF), which is currently taking place.
