Mott MacDonald is Owner’s Engineer for US$1.6 billion power plant in Saudi Arabia

Mott MacDonald has been appointed by Dhuruma Electricity Company as Owner’s Engineer for a US$1.6 billion power plant in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. Located 125km from Riyadh in Riyadh Central Province, the power plant is being constructed to meet the rising future demand for electricity in Saudi Arabia and facilitate the continued growth of the country.

The Riyadh PP11 power plant is expected to produce around 1700MW of electricity and will be Saudi Arabia’s largest combined cycle gas-fired power station. The project also involves the construction of a 380 kilovolt gas insulated substation for the export of the power to the Saudi National Grid.

Mott MacDonald’s project team is to carry out a review of the engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contractor’s design. This will then be followed by on site supervision of the construction, erection and commissioning of the power plant and the associated 380 kilovolt switchyard.

Claudio Tassistro, Mott MacDonald’s project director said, “We are delighted to be appointed on this mega project for the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia which marks our largest project to date in the country. For over 100 years we’ve played a leading role in helping clients deliver some of the world’s most challenging and prestigious projects in power.”

He continued, “Mott MacDonald has a strong track record of delivering power projects in the Middle East and we look forward to demonstrating our world class skills.”

The project is due for completion in 2013.
