Saudi Arabia: steam power plant

The Saudi Electricity Company has selected a consortium led by Alstom and including its civil partner Archirodon for the supply and construction of the Shoaiba Steam Power Plant extension project. The value for Alstom is approximately EUR 675 million of a total EUR 835 million for the whole project. The formal contract is expected to be signed with the consortium in the coming weeks. Alstom has already supplied this site with 5 units of 370 MW, all of which are now in commercial operation. Under this new contract, Alstom will design, supply and install another three identical units covering the supply, installation and commissioning of boilers, steam turbines, generators and the complete balance of plants and systems. The boilers are designed to burn both crude and heavy oil, using Alstom’s tangential-firing technology. The contract should also include an option to build a further three units on the same site which could be exercised within 12 months. This would make Shoaiba the largest power plant in the Middle East with an output in excess of 4000 MW.
