Bilfinger expands cooperation with Saudi Electricity Company

  • Inspection and maintenance at two power plants in Saudi Arabia
  • Three-year extension of cooperation in place since 2013 at Ghazlan Power plant
  • New contract with base term of six years awarded at Shuqaiq Power plant
  • Combined order volume of ~€35 million with option to expand volume up to €62 million


Bilfinger's cooperation with Saudi Electricity Company (SEC), the Saudi Arabian electric energy company, has been extended by a further three years in Ghazlan Power plant and a similar new contract with base term of six years has been awarded for Shuqaiq Power plant. Some 300 employees of Bilfinger Babcock Borsig Service Arabia Ltd. are deployed at these plants to carry out maintenance and repair activities. The order, with a minimum combined volume of around €35 million and expansion options that could raise the total to up to €62 million, will be booked in the Engineering & Maintenance International segment of Bilfinger.

“It is always a special honor for us as a service provider when an important customer like SEC is so satisfied with our services that they once again place their trust in us. Not only are we extending our cooperation at the Ghazlan power plant, but we are also expanding our cooperation to execute similar work at the Shuqaiq power plant,” says Christian Rugland, Acting Executive President of Bilfinger Middle East.

Bilfinger is responsible for the inspection and maintenance of various plant components at the power plants. The scope of services includes, among other things, the repair of deaerators, steam drums, boiler ducts, boiler casings, blowdown and flash tank test and the repair of burners and burner gas valves and actuators, repairs at sea water intake areas, various valves across the plant and other auxiliary equipment. Bilfinger has been conducting maintenance and repair work at the Ghazlan power plant since 2013. SEC has now extended the contract for this work by three years. Similar work at the power plant in Shuqaiq has now been added.

Christian Rugland: “Bilfinger Babcock Borsig Service Arabia Ltd.'s proven track record in plant maintenance and repair was a key factor for the award of these contracts to us. We regard our cooperation with SEC as a growing partnership based on a high degree of mutual trust.”

The natural gas-fired power plant in Ghazlan is located almost 60 kilometers north of Dammam on the east coast of Saudi Arabia. With a capacity of 4,000 megawatts, it is the largest power plant in the Middle East region. SEC's Shuqaiq power plant is located on the west coast of Saudi Arabia, about 600 kilometers south of Jeddah. The integrated power plant includes facilities for generating electricity from heavy crude oil as well as seawater desalination plants and has a total capacity of 2,880 megawatts.

Bilfinger Babcock Borsig Service Arabia Ltd., based in Dammam, Saudi Arabia, supplies high-quality products and services to the Saudi Oil & Gas, petrochemical, power and desalination industries. As part of Bilfinger Middle East, the unit has been active in the process industry for more than 40 years.
