Saudi Arabia's Renewable Energy Project Development Office (REPDO) has floated requests for proposals (RFPs) to develop a wind power project in the country. 

REPDO is a part of Saudi Arabia’s Ministry of Energy, Industry, and Mineral Resources (MEIMR).

The first utility-scale wind development will be implemented as part of the country's National Renewable Energy Program (NREP). 

RFPs for the 400-megawatt (MW) plant in Al Jouf region's Dumat Al Jandal are now available for 25 qualified bidders on NREP's e-procurement portal. 

Bidding works for the project will close in January 2018.

The qualified companies will proceed to the RFP stage as managing members, technical members, or both, based on their experience of the independent power producer (IPP) model on projects of similar scale.

NREP's future RFPs and requests for quotations (RFQs) will be offered to companies or consortia that are unsuccessful in their current applications to be managing or technical members.

Dumat Al Jandal marks the second of two tenders for round one of the NREP, Saudi's state agency reported.

Round two of the programme will be launched "before the end of this year", Eng Khalid Al-Falih, the Minister of Energy, Industry and Mineral Resources, said.

He added: "We are moving forward to diversify the kingdom’s energy mix and to build a more sustainable and cleaner energy system that benefits Saudi Arabia and its citizens.

"Round two of the NREP will [keep] us firmly on track to deliver 9.5 gigawatts (GW) of renewable energy by 2023."
