Louis Berger Services, a leading professional engineering services firm, said its joint venture with KFB Holding Group/Exap Contracting, has secured a power generation contract for the construction of the floating industrial zone Oxagon within Saudi Arabia's futuristic city NEOM.
A member of leading engineering consulting firm WSP, Louis Berger Services is a specialist in turnkey power projects, infrastructure operations, maintenance, logistics and ground support services.
Under this deal, as the engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contractor, the Louis Berger Services joint venture - LBPKSA - will design, supply, and install a containerised diesel power plant for the Saudi Arabian Trading & Construction Company (Satco).
Because the power plant will operate on prime power applications, the system will be able to reliably supply 24/7 power operation to Oxagon’s developers and residents who are building the city.
The diesel power plant for Oxagon marks LBPKSA’s third power generation contract to support the visionary NEOM region.
As per the contract, the joint venture firm has provided green power solutions to Satco and the Al Tamimi Group to help build two residential camps (NEOM Construction Village 2) within the fuituristic city that will house 30,000 people, it stated.
For Satco, the Louis Berger JV had engineered, supplied, installed and tested/commissioned a hybrid power plant that integrates solar photovoltaic (PV) power technology, including an automatic robotic cleaning system with conventional power and battery energy storage.
The hybrid power system will reduce carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions by 6,491.7 tonnes per year and cut diesel fuel consumption by 2,801,100 liters per year, it stated.
Louis Berger Services said its joint venture has begun a power generation contract using Cummins generator technology to help support construction of the housing camp at Oxagon as one of NEOM’s cities, the futuristic mega-city that’s being built in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.
Oxagon will be a 7-km-wide floating city, making it the largest floating structure in the world.
LBPKSA designed, built, installed, and tested/commissioned a solar PV powerplant for the Al Tamimi Group that features its own robotic cleaning system, in integration with the existing conventional power plant.
The solar PV technology will reduce CO2 emissions by 8,093 tons per year and decrease diesel fuel consumption by 3,492,300 liters per year.-TradeArabia News Service
