On May 16, 2012, Arabian Bemco signed a S.R 4.7 billion contract (USD 1.3 billion) with the Saudi Electricity Company to build a Grass Root Combined Cycle Power Plant in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. The plant is located 100 KM West of Riyadh City. Once completed, the new grass root combined cycle power plant (PP12) will produce a net output of 2,175 MW at ambient temperature of 45C with high efficiency. The plant utilizes exhaust gases from the gas turbines to generate steam and run the steam turbines, maximizing the fuel utilization with a highly efficient combined cycle design. In addition, a new 380 kV Substation will be built adjacent to the power plant. PP12 is expected to be completed in 2015.
