Project Description

The Combined Cycle Gas Turbine (CCGT) Power Plant is to be constructed on PP10 site located on the outskirt of Riyadh City on Al-Kharj road in the Central

Province in KSA. The project scope is to convert the Simple Cycle Gas Turbine (SCGT) Plant to Combined Cycle Gas Turbine Plant for blocks A1, A2, B1, B2 and C1 including supply of common balance of plant for all blocks.

The configuration of each combined cycle block will be 4 GTGs + 4 HRSGs + 1 STG + 1 ACC with a total of 10 Blocks with provision for installation of TIAC System in the future.
