UAE-based renewable energy company Masdar has announced plans to retender the engineering-procurement-construction (EPC) contract for its joint venture wind project in Dhofar area of the Oman, said a report, citing a senior official representing the electricity sector.

The landmark venture is being developed in collaboration with Raeco, a subsidiary of Oman Electricity Holding Company (Nama Group) in the windswept Thamrait province at an investment of $125 million.

Owing to this new development, the sultanate’s maiden attempt to develop a commercial-scale wind-based electricity generation capacity is likely to get delayed, reported Oman Daily Observer.

The facility, which will meet the electricity needs of around 16,000 homes in the Thamrait area, was initially planned for launch in 2017, it stated.

Around four international companies had submitted offers for the EPC package when it was first floated last year, it added.
