Dumat Al Jandal, the first in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, is now connected to the grid and has produced its first megawatt-hours (MWh) of energy.
The 400MW wind power project is being developed by a consortium led by EDF Renewables and Masdar. The wind farm consists of 99 wind turbines from supplier and EPC contractor Vestas, each with a power output of 4.2 MW. Construction began in September 2019. The Dumat Al Jandal wind farm will supply electricity under a 20-year power purchase agreement (PPA) with the Saudi Power Procurement Company, a subsidiary of the Saudi Electricity Company (SEC), the Saudi power generation and distribution company.
