Saudi partnership for heat-recovery program
Power and desalinated water for Kingdom's Eastern Province
Two Saudi companies have entered a partnership agreement to develop a heat recovery program to produce electricity and desalinated water in the Kingdom’s Eastern Province.
The agreement was signed by Abdulrahman Al-Jomaih, chairman of Gasan Investement and Industrial Development Company, and Salah Al-AFaliq, CEO of the National TriGeneration CHP Company.
Source energy, a subsidiary of NTCC, will handle the new project to turn waste heat into electricity, and a spokesman from the company also said that the power could also produce desalinated water in the industrial city of Jubail in the Eastern Province.
The plant will be built next to Gasan’s facility and, planned to begin operating in the third quarter of next year, it is expected to produce more than 24 megawatts of electricity.
