 The Saudi Electricity Co (SEC) has announced that work has begun on a power plant in Rabigh, 150 km northwest of Jeddah, after it has awarded the US$3,4 billion contract to South Korea's Doosan Heavy Industries and Construction, Arab News has reported.

The Rabigh-6 plant, using gas turbines, will be powered by natural gas and crude. It will have a capacity of 2,400 to 2,800 MW, around 12 to 14 percent of the 20,000 MW of power the SEC plans to add by 2018 at an estimated cost of $80billion.
