Saline Water Conversion Corporation - Yanbu Power and Desalination Plant Phase 3



Saline Water Conversion Corporation planned to develop Yanbu Power and Desalination Plant Phase 3 Project, in Yanbu, Medina, Saudi Arabia. Fichtner Consulting Engineers and DAR Engineering were the consultants of the project. SEPCOIII was the EPC contractor. Originally, Al-Toukhi and Samsung Engineering consortium carried out the EPC work on the plant until January 2017 but then terminated the contract due to changes in the turbine specifications. Kinetic Energy Factory Co, 'Alstom Middle East FZE and General Electric Co were contractors of the project. The project included the construction of five supercritical boilers, each producing 660 MW of electricity and a supporting seawater desalination plant (550,000 cu.m/d (121 MIGD) ). A sea water intake channel would transmit water to the desalination unit. An outfall drain would discharge the seawater into the Red Sea. A 380 kV substation at Yanbu would connect the plant to the Saudi Electricity Company grid. The main feedstock would consist of heavy fuel oil. The project responded to the Belt and Road Initiative and would provide more than 13,000 jobs to workers from more than 10 countries and regions along the Belt and Road.
