Kuwait requests proposals for Az Zhour North and Al Khairan

Kuwait Authority for Partnership Projects (KAPP) has issued a request for proposals on Az Zour North phase two and three and Al Khairan phase one power and desalination projects.

KAPP is seeking submissions from firms to handle feasibility studies, financing, and tendering – including preparing the request for qualification documents – for the public-private partnership (PPP) projects.

KAPP, with the Kuwait Ministry of Electricity and Water (MEW), issued a call for expressions of interest on the two schemes in July 2018.

Az Zhour North phase two and three covers a plant of 2,700 MW and 165 MIGD (750,105 m3/d) of desalinated water. Al Khairan phase one is for a plant of 1,800 MW and 125 MIGD (568,261 m3/d).

The deadline for submissions is 7 March 2019.
