International representatives tour Al-Zour North Power Station site

Today is the final day for representatives and alliances qualified for phases two and three of the project’s implementation to submit their inquiries before the tender submission period closes.

  • The Partnership Projects Authority announced on March 31 the opening of the door for qualified companies to submit their bids to implement the project, which will produce 2,700 MWs of electricity and 120 million imperial gallons of water per day.

  • The Ministry of Electricity, Water, and Renewable Energy has started to implement the contract for constructing nine fresh water towers in the residential city of Al-Mutlaa and the associated works.

The Ministry of Electricity, Water, and Renewable Energy, in collaboration with the General Authority for Public-Private Partnership Projects, arranged an inspection tour at the Al-Zour North Power Station project site for representatives of international companies and alliances qualified for phases two and three of the project’s implementation.

Informed sources at the ministry explained that since the bidding window opened, international companies and alliances have been permitted to submit inquiries regarding the project’s tender documents. These inquiries will be responded to by the public authority. It was indicated that today, “Monday will be the last date for companies to submit their inquiries before the door for receiving inquiries closes.”

The sources indicated that some companies had submitted their inquiries and are waiting for responses to the remaining inquiries from other companies. They pointed out that most companies and alliances have requested an extension of the period for supplying gas turbines due to their connection with the deadlines of international companies that manufacture these turbines.

Sources stated that the Partnership Projects Authority announced on March 31 the opening of the door for qualified companies to submit their bids to implement the project, which will produce 2,700 megawatts of electricity and 120 million imperial gallons of water per day.

On the other hand, the ministry has started to implement the contract for constructing nine fresh water towers in the residential city of Al-Mutlaa and the associated works. The project contractor completed all licenses required for establishing these works, as per the specifications outlined in the contract awarded at the end of last year. The ministry allocated 7.796 million dinars for the construction of these towers and complementary works.

Informed sources have stated that the ministry completed the establishment of several water tanks in Al-Mutlaa during the recent period. This work is part of the infrastructure development aimed at providing water to the area and serving families who hold vouchers there, as well as various government buildings.

The sources further explained that among the infrastructure projects is the establishment of a main water delivery line to the region. All necessary approvals have been obtained for this, allowing the project contractor to begin implementation. The towers will be constructed at Site No. ‘2’ in the city, aiming to provide adequate pressure for fresh water and increase the strategic freshwater supply.
