Al Khiran Independent Water & Power Project - Phase 1
The project will be located to the south of existing Al-Zour South power & water project in Kuwait and include a 400kV substation. Low-sulphur fuel oil, gasoline, crude oil and/or natural gas will be used for fire the plant. Desalination component will use multi-stage flash, multiple-effect distillation and/or reverse osmosis technology. A special purpose vehicle (SPV) will be established to design, build, finance, operate and maintain the facility. The combined-cycle power plant will need to boast a net power capacity of 1,800MW, with a net water capacity of 125 million imperial gallons per day (MIGD). The project is expected to be run on Low Sulphur Fuel Oil (LSFO) and will be able to accommodate crude oil, gas oil and natural gas as backup fuels. The project will be located at the Al Khiran site on the Arabian Gulf coast approximately 100 km south of Kuwait City and will export its outputs to Kuwait's electricity grid and water transmission network. The project is currently under planning.
