The consortium consisting of EDF Renewables and Masdar (Abu Dhabi Future Energy Company PJSC) has announced that it has won the tender for the Dumat Al Jandal 400MW wind farm. The wind farm will benefit from a 20-year power purchase agreement (PPA) with the Saudi Power Procurement Company, a subsidiary of SEC (Saudi Electricity Company).
The Dumat Al Jandal project was awarded to the consortium by the Renewable Energy Project Development Office (REPDO) following a call for tenders launched in August 2017. The wind farm is located 560 miles from north of Riyadh, in the Al Jouf region of north-western Saudi Arabia. Both EDF Renewables and Masdar teams are already mobilised and construction works will start in a few months. The project is 51%-owned by EDF Renewables and 49%-owned by Masdar.
