Studio 101 Residential Building Project - Studio City
This project will be located on Masirah Island, off the eastern seaboard in Oman. Construction of a pilot wind-based power plant with proposed capacity of 1.7 megawatts (MW) project is expected to be Sultanates first commercial windpowered plant with an implementation timeframe that is set to precede the much-anticipated 50 MW Wind Farm project planned at Thamrait in Dhofar Governorate. The latter scheme, originally planned for launch by 2017, is being jointly implemented by RAECO and Masdar (an investment vehicle of the Abu Dhabi government) at a cost of $125 million. It is expected to be Sultanate's first commercial wind-powered plant. According to the client, the scheme will be developed by Gulf Renewable Energy (GRE MENA), a subsidiary of US-based Southern Energy Partners, which is behind a string of renewable projects in a number of countries around the world. Technical and financial submissions of the developer are currently under review. The plant is expected to consist of two wind turbines.
