Saudi extends deadline for power plant bids in Jeddah

Saudi Electricity Company (SEC) has extended the deadline to 17th April for technical bids to build a 2400 MW power plant at Jeddah South.

Ali Abarrak, CEO of Saudi Electricity Meed reports that contractors now have until the extended time to submit bids for the engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contract.

The bid deadline has been pushed back several times since the original deadline of 22 November 2011. Sources at SEC have revealed the steps were taken in response to requests for extensions from the bidders.

SEC adjusted the scope of the Jeddah South project in 2011. Under the current plan, the project will comprise four conventional thermal generating units, each with a minimum capacity of 600 MW.

The overall capacity will total a minimum of 2400 MW and bidders are allowed to submit proposals for projects up to 2640 MW (10 per cent upwards flexibility).
