  • Saudi Arabia’s SPPC has released a list of shortlisted companies for its 3.7 GW solar tenders 
  • The 23 domestic and international firms made the list, out of the 31 applicants the SPPC says responded to its call 
  • The winners will need to establish the entire capacity across 4 provinces in the country 

The Saudi Power Procurement Company (SPPC) has shortlisted 23 local and international companies as interested bidders for Saudi Arabia’s renewable energy round 5 tender under the National Renewable Energy Program (NREP). 

These 23 companies were picked from 31 applicants that submitted their application for the request for qualification (RFQ) round launched in November 2023. The SPPC is seeking bidders for a combined 3.7 GW solar PV capacity (see Saudi Arabia Launches Multi-GW Solar Tenders). 

Shortlisted companies include Abu Dhabi’s Masdar, France’s EDF Renouvelables, France’s Total Energies Renewables, China’s SPIC Huanghe Hydropower Development, JinkoPower (HK), Power Construction Corporation of China and Saudi Arabia’s Saudi Electricity Company, among others.  

These firms will be competing against each other for the 2 GW AC Al Sadawi Solar PV IPP in the Eastern Province, the 1 GW AC Al Masa in Hail Province, the 400 MW AC Al Henakiyah 2 in Madinah Province, and the 300 MW AC Rabigh 2 Solar PV project in Makkah Province. 

The consortium of Masdar, EDF Renewables and Nesma Company was earlier selected as the winner of the 1.1 GW Al Henakiyah Solar PV project and the consortium of JinkoPower (HK), Sun Glare Holding and Sunlight Energy Holding for 400 MW Tabarjal Solar PV Project under round 4 of the NREP (see SPPC Announces Winners For 1.5 GW Solar PV Capacity).  

In December 2023, Saudi Arabian Energy Minister Prince Abdulaziz Bin Salman announced that the country is studying 1,200 sites across the kingdom to determine the most suitable locations for solar energy projects.
