Saudi Arabia’s Ras Al Zour mega utility project tender documents are expected to be submitted to bidders this week, with offers for submission expected by the end of the first half of 2010.



The news follows Saline Water Conversion Corporation (SWCC) taking over responsibility for the site in September, after the Saudi government stepped in to pull the Ras Al Zour IWPP earlier this year due to financing problems.


“The capacity for Ras Al Zour is 2400MW and one million m3 of desalinated water, which covers the needs of SWCC and Maaden,” said SWCC governor Fehied Al Shareef.


Fichtner is the consulting engineer for the Ras Al Zour project, which is expected to cost around 20% to 25% less than the US $6 billion originally estimated.
