Poyry wins engineer services deal for Musandam IPP
Finnish consulting and engineering company bags contract for 120 MW power project in Oman.
Poyry has won the owner's engineer services assignment for the Musandam IPP (Independent Power Plant) Project.
The Musandam Power Company has awarded the contract which includes the design review of the EPC (Engineering, Procurement and Construction) contractor documentation as well as technical and site supervision services, Poyry said in a statement without disclosing the value of the order.
Lead developer Oman Oil Company and its partner LG International Corporation from South Korea are setting up this 120 MW IPP at Tibat, Wilayat Bukha in the Musandam Governorate of Oman.
As the Musandam peninsula is separated from the rest of the country, its electricity grid is also independent from Oman national grid and the plant must have a very high reliability and availability.
It is designed to run primarily with natural gas but also to accept diesel fuel as a back-up fuel. This project will substitute the existing diesel-powered generation facilities in the governorate.
The fast track project is scheduled to be completed by the end of the fourth quarter, 2016.
