selected from each country in the GCC and from every industrial category; i.e. Oil & Gas, Power & Water Desalination, Water Reuse, Industrial, Leisure & Tourism, Social, Building, Sustainable and Transport projects. On this occasion, MEED announced Arabian Bemco as the winner for the best Power and Desalination Project in the GCC for 2012.

The projects were evaluated based on economic and social feasibility, design and architecture, engineering and sustainability by six judges from Bahrain, Kuwait,


Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia and U.A.E. The MEED Quality Awards are for completed and successful projects that deliver value for their owners and users.

Valued at $2.9 billion and consisting of 32 GTGs generating approximately 2,600 MW power to the central region, Riyadh PP10 is one of the largest single-contract Simple Cycle Power Plant and has


achieved outstanding success in quality during the delivery of the project taking into consideration the challenges overcome from design planning, to engineering and construction.
