Renewable energy has also an important place in the strategy of Oman Power and Water Procurement Company (OPWP) as the government is moving forward to diversify its energy resources to drive sustainability at the economic and environmental fronts. OPWP plans to implement several solar and wind-based renewable energy projects in a move to generate 10 per cent (2,500-3,000 megawatt) of power in the total mix by 2025.
This waste-to-energy project is expected to strengthen Oman’s plans to diversify sources of electricity, away from merely gas-fired power plants.
OPWP is at the stage of hiring a Technical and Economic Advisor to carry out the feasibility study of the project. Information on the tender process can be found online here.
