South Korea's Doosan Heavy Industries and Construction will build a SR12.75bn ($3.4bn) power plant for the Saudi Electricity Company (SEC).

The new 2,555MW power plant, to be run with gas turbines and powered by gas and crude, will aid SEC in meeting the growing demand for power in the provinces of Makkah and Madinah, Saudi Arabia.

SEC CEO Ali Al-Barrak said the new plant will have systems to get rid of nitrogen oxide, carbon gases and carbon ashes to protect the environment.

The project, to be financed through a SR15bn ($3.9bn) government loan, is expected to be completed in 51 months.
