SINGAPORE: Sembcorp Industries said it is confident about completing the Salalah Independent Water and Power Plant in Oman ahead of schedule in April 2012.
The strong expectations came as its joint venture company, Sembcorp Salalah Power and Water Company successfully completes the first phase of the US$1 billion plant.
With the completion of the first phase, the facility has began dispatching 61 megawatts of power to a power grid in Southern Oman.
It was originally targeted to begin full commercial operations in the first half of 2012.
The power plant, which will have a total net capacity of 445 megawatts and a seawater desalination plant, will use reverse osmosis to produce 69,000 cubic metres of water per day.
Sembcorp Salalah Power and Water Company is 60 per cent owned by Sembcorp Utilities and 40 per cent owned by the Oman Investment.
