November deadline set for Qatar’s Facility E IWPP
Qatar’s state utility Kahramaa has set a new bid submission date of 15 November for bidders to submit alternative prices for the planned Facility E independent water and power project (IWPP)
Qatar’s state utility Kahramaa has set a new bid submission date of 15 November for bidders to submit alternative prices for the planned Facility E independent water and power project (IWPP).
Bidders now have until 30 September to submit proposals, with the deadline having been extended by three months from 30 June.
Energy & Utilities reported in January that Kahramaa had asked the three bidders vying for the Facility E IWPP to submit alternative proposals for a larger capacity project, with the client having received bids from the three groups in August 2020.
Kahramaa subsequently extended the bid submission date for alternative bids to 28 February, before the deadline was moved to 30 June and then 30 September.
For the alternative proposals, bidders have been asked to submit bids for an IWPP with a generation capacity of 2,600MW rather than the 2,300MW specified in the original tender.
Kahramaa received proposals from the following three groups for the Facility E IWPP:
- Engie (France) / Mitsui (Japan)/ Shikoku Electric (Japan)
- Marubeni (Japan)/Kyushu Electric (Japan)
- Sumitomo (Japan)/ Kansai Electric (Japan)
Each bidding consortium contained a Japanese developer and a Japanese utility.
In addition to the planned 2,300-2,600MW power generation capacity, the Facility E IWPP is expected to have a desalination capacity of 100 million imperial gallons a day (MIGD).
Energy & Utilities reported in June that Kahramaa had appointed a new advisory team for the planned Facility E IWPP project.
The utility originally appointed advisors for the project in 2017, however the client retendered the advisory contract and appointed the following firms: PwC (financial adviser), Clyde & Co (legal adviser) and Energo (technical adviser).
The Facility E IWPP is the first cogeneration project that Qatar has proceeded with since it commissioned the Facility D IWPP in 2018. The Facility D plant was developed with a power generation capacity of 2,500MW and a desalination component of 136 MIGD.
