Oman: power and water

Tractebel Electricity & Gas International (TEGI), a business division of Suez-Tractebel SA, has been selected to design, build, own, operate and maintain the greenfield Sohar Independent Water and Power project in Oman. The project consists of a 585MW Combined Cycle Gas Turbines plant and a 33 million imperial gallons a day water desalination plant. The plant will be owned by Sohar Power Company and located in the Sohar Industrial Area, north of Muscat, on the Gulf of Oman, between TEGI’s Al Manah plant and the Taweelah A1 plant (Abu Dhabi), at about 300km from each. The project was awarded by the Ministry of Housing, Water and Electricity (MHEW) to a consortium held by Tractebel EGI and its local partners National Trading Corp., Zubair Corp., WJ Towell & Co., Sogex Oman, and the Ministry of Defence Pension Fund (MODPF), following an international tendering procedure. The project will sell electricity and water to the Oman Power and Water Procurement Company SAOC (PWP) under a 15-year agreement beginning on 1 April 2007. The project will already provide power to the grid as early as 2006.
