Saudi Arabia seeks firms for wind study

Saline Water Conversion Corporation is considering the feasibility of using wind power for reverse osmosis plants.

By MEED   

Saudi Arabia’s Saline Water Conversion Corporation (SWCC) has invited firms to bid for the contract to study the feasibility of using wind power for seawater reverse osmosis (RO) plants in Haql and Jubail.

SWCC’s Research, Innovation and Desalination Technologies Institute is the project client.

It expects to receive bids by 22 December.

The potential projects include a 100MW wind power plant to provide flexible load operation and storage capacity in Haql and two 100MW facilities in Jubail.

The study will cover the collection of geophysical, topographic and bathymetric data and the assessment of preferred location of a wind power plant in those locations.

It also covers the conceptual design of a turnkey off-grid power supply system including necessary storage and, if necessary, partial baseload power generation by diesel or diesel-gas generator.
