K&M’s Technical Services Team was hired by the National Electric Power Company (NEPCO) and Attarat Power Company (APCO) to serve as Independent Engineers for the 554 MW Attarat Oil Shale Power Plant Project. NEPCO is a national electric utility in Jordan that is responsible for contracting new generation capacity. APCO, while based in Jordan, has international shareholders and was created to develop, design, finance, construct, test, commission, complete, own, insure, operate and maintain a 554 MW oil shale fired power plant. The plant will ultimately sell its capacity and energy to NEPCO under a long-term Power Purchase Agreement (PPA).
Led by Managing Director of Technical Services, Lenny Golbin, K&M will review the PPA and project design documents, conduct site visits, issue mechanical and electrical completion certificates, witness project acceptance tests and certify test results, and issue project commercial operation certificates. The K&M team will also perform reviews of the turnover packages for each of the power plant systems, review and comment on functional and performance test procedures, and review and certify the functional and performance test results.
This marks K&M’s seventh assignment in Jordan since 2010. We are proud to continue supporting energy expansion in Jordan.
