Bad Vilbel, Hessen, Germany, 2018/11/16 - A new gas turbine power plant is planned to provide a more reliable electricity supply in the southern part of the Sudanese capital Khartoum - Lahmeyer.de.
Lahmeyer International has been contracted as the technical consultant to identify a suitable EPC contractor to construct the planned 300 MW gas turbine power plant. In early July 2018, eight companies presented their bids to participate in the tendering process.
In 2021, the Albagair Open Cycle Power Plant is scheduled to start commercial operation. The biggest challenge in this project, besides the high ambient temperatures and sandstorms, is the planned fuels. The power plant is designed for different types of fuels, including heavy fuel oil, to maximize operational flexibility.
On behalf of the Sudanese Thermal Power Generating Company (STPG), Lahmeyer will help determine a suitable EPC contractor for this demanding project. For this purpose, the power plant experts prepared the tender documents. After the evaluation of the technical bidding documents, four bidders are now qualified for further evaluation. For this purpose, the commercial bidding documents were opened in early October 2018 and are now being evaluated. After the evaluation, Lahmeyer will support the customer in the contract negotiations with the most successful bidder.
As a leading international engineering company, Lahmeyer International (lahmeyer.de) offers a broad range of planning and consultancy services. Our services relate primarily to complex infrastructure projects in the energy, hydropower and water resources sectors.
The Lahmeyer name stands for experience, quality and international competence, as can be seen not only in the developing and emerging economies of Africa, Asia and South America, but also in Germany and Europe generally. Project concepts are successfully realised through the application of German and international standards.
Since December 2014 the Lahmeyer Group belongs to Tractebel Engineering, and thus is part of the former GDF SUEZ Group – today ENGIE.
