More power and water for Saudi
New heat recovery programme to produce electricity and desal water
Two Riyadh companies have signed a partnership agreement to develop a heat recovery programme in order to produce electricity and desalinated water in the Saudi Arabia’s eastern province.
Signed between Gasan Investment and Industrial Development Company and the National TriGeneration CHP Company, the plant is planned for development next to Gasan’s existing Jubail facility, and will begin operation in the third quarter of 2012.
Source Energy, a subsidiary of NTCC, is to handle the waste heat to electricity project, which is anticipated to produce more than 24MW of electricity. This electricity, sources say, will also be partly used to produce desalinated water.
