The Ministry of Electricity, Water and Renewable Energy is studying the bids related to the power stations sector, in preparation for submitting its recommendations to the Central Agency for Tenders.

Informed sources in the ministry told a local Arabic daily that the ministry has formed two committees headed by the chief engineer of the power plant projects sector in the ministry, Eng Muhammad Al-Enezi, to study tenders for the supply, installation, operation and maintenance of the project of converting the second phase of gas turbines in the Subbiya plant to a combined cycle system with a capacity of 250 megawatts, and a tender for the installation of photovoltaic panels over water tanks for the Subbiya station with a capacity of 26 megawatts.

The sources indicated that a third committee was formed, headed by the chief engineer for operation and maintenance of power stations, Engineer Haitham Al-Ali, to study bids for the modernization of Doha West boilers.

The sources indicated that the closing date of the tenders will take place at the same time, and their bids will be sent to the Ministry for study.

On the other hand, the sources were optimistic about the decrease in temperature levels and their impact on power loads compared to the previous weeks, which witnessed a noticeable rise in temperatures, which coincided with electricity consumption rates to record numbers, reaching 16,180 megawatts, pointing to the Ministry’s success during the summer season to control the situation during most difficult periods in the history of the ministry.

The sources stated that the ministry, represented by its technical sectors, intends to prepare schedules for maintenance work in these sectors to prepare for the next summer season.
