On June 11, 2007, Arabian Bemco was awarded a SR 2.1 billion (USD 570 Million) contract with SEC to build the 2,500 MW Qurayyah Open Cycle Power Plant in the Eastern Province of KSA. Under the engineering, civil construction and mechanical erection package, Arabian Bemco will install gas-fired turbines at the plant supplied by the US' GE Energy. On June 27, 2010 a S.R 2.06 billion (USD 550 million) extension contract was awarded to Arabian Bemco to convert the Open Cycle Power Plant to Combined Cycle Power Plant by adding five steam turbines and fifteen (15) Heat Recovery Steam Generators (HRSGs) to the facility, along with the required civil and marine works, with total capacity of 1,300 MW per year. This will bring total capacity of the plant to a total of 3,800 MW when the project is completed by early 2015. On Dec 27, 2010 Arabian Bemco signed another extension contract (Block 6) 800 MW to the Combined Cycle bringing total generation capacity to 4,600 MW once completed in 2013 and an aggregate value of S.R 11 billion (USD 3 billion). The plant total area is 1.5 million square meters.
