Al-Oula K.S.C

The Az-Zour North one gas-fired combined cycle power and water plant is located at
Az-Zour, approximately 100km south of Kuwait City.
The power plant was built as part of the Az-Zour North Independent Water
and Power Project (IWPP). The construction of the power plant along with a
desalination plant forms the first phase of five phases of the Independent
Water and Power Project.

Gas Fired Az-Zour


North Power Plant

The 1,500MW Az-Zour North Power plant will be based on combined cycle gas
turbine technology using heat recovery steam generators and steam turbines.
The turbines will generate electricity using natural gas as primary
fuel and fuel oil (gas oil) as back-up fuel. Fuel requirements of the plant will be
fulfilled by MEW.
