Kuwait is currently finalizing tender terms for a solar CSP EOR plant of capacity up to 100 MWth at Ratqa oilfield, and to launch the tender later this year. Industry sources say that some 11 CSP companies have pre-qualified to bid on the tender. Click to read the news [...]
Kuwait is currently finalizing tender terms for a CSP steam production plant at a heavy crude oilfield operated by the Kuwait Oil Company (KOC). The state-owned operator plans to use solar steam for Enhanced Oil Recovery (EOR) to reduce natural gas consumption and free up domestic hydrocarbon resources for export, [...]
Shagaya 50MW CSP project, the first commercial CSP plant in Kuwait, is now under construction, and expected to be completed by the year of 2018. Developed by Kuwait Institute for Scientific Research (KISR), the project signed EPC contract (USD $385 million) with a consortium consisting of Spanish EPC company TSK [...]
Kuwait is exploring renewable energy-enhanced oil recovery techniques, mainly from concentrated solar power, to slash import bills. Kuwait Oil Company (KOC) said it was in discussions with companies to use concentrated solar power to extract oil as the Opec member country looks for alternative methods to maximise production at a [...]
Kuwait's renewable energy plans show that Concentrated Solar Power (CSP) has a paramount role to play in the country's future energy mix.
The Al Abdaliyah Integrated Solar Combined Cycle Project will be a Concentrated Solar Power (CSP) plant, similar to this project built in the UAE by Masdar.
Integrated Concentrated Solar Power (CSP)plant will have a solar component of 60 MW.
Al Abdaliya CSP solar park is the Kuwait's first solar power project; and an assessment of the 50MW CSP and 10MW PV solar power mix which forms part of the key components of Kuwait's strategy.
Kuwait will soon be home to a rather large, 280 MW concentrated solar power (CSP) plant – located in Abdaliya, just southwest of the farming region of Kabad.
The last quarter of 2014 has been filled in with several crucial announcements for the Global Concentrating Solar Power (CSP) industry.
The first concentrating solar power plant to be built in the Gulf state of Kuwait, a 280MW solar thermal power plant in Al-Abdaliya, is expected to go online by the end of this year.
Developed directly from primary data listed on the CSP Today Global Tracker, this data-based analysis of the industry is the perfect tool to further understanding of global market developments at a glance.
Solar energy is set to emerge as one of the Gulf region's main sources of energy by 2017 with approximately 155 billion worth of solar power installation projects to generate more than 84GW of power.
