Kuwait's Partnerships Technical Bureau (PTB) in collaboration with the Ministry of Electricity and Water (MEW), has issued a request for expressions of interest for the development of the Abdaliya Integrated Solar Combined Cycle project.
The project will be developed on a design, build, finance, operation and maintenance basis for a period of 25 years. The selected firm will sign an energy conversion and power purchase agreement with the MEW.
The total capacity of the power plant will be 280 MW, with a solar contribution of 60 MW.
The power plant will be located in Abdaliyah South west of Kuwait, with a plot area of 2 Square kilometers. The project will develop the first solar thermal power plant in Kuwait.
The project aims to meet the growing demand for electricity in the State of Kuwait and filling the needs of the state through the establishment of a power plant, as the project aims to use renewable solar energy to preserve the environment and reduce heat and gas emissions specially carbon dioxide CO2 in the air. It is expected that the plant will provide services more efficient than that of a conventional combined cycle power plant, with stable continuous power generation.
Interested parties must submit their expressions of interest on or before 23 July 2014.
