AL ASKAR IPP

AL ASKAR IPP

OVERVIEW

Al Askar IPP is an independent power plant being constructed on a build, own, operate model at the Askar landfill site, in Bahrain’s southern governorate. A consortium led by ACWA Power, Mitsui and Almoayyed Contracting Group WLL submitted the lowest bid of 14.668 Bahraini Dinar /MWh ($39.1) for electricity to be generated by the project. ACWA Power has the majority stake (60%) followed by Mitsui (30%) and Almoayyed Contracting Group WLL (10%).

Considered the country’s first large-scale PV power plant, the project was commissioned to generate 100 MW through solar power, achieving nearly 50% of the target set by the Kingdom’s National Renewable Energy Action Plan (NREAP) - which aims to bring 255 MW of PV capacity online by 2025.
