Augmenting our well-established presence in Oman’s power and water desalination sector, we are developing our first renewables project in the Middle East.
Through a partnership between Sembcorp Utilities and Jinko Power Technology, Sembcorp Jinko Shine SAOC (SJSS) was awarded by Oman Power and Water Procurement (PWP) to build, own and operate the Manah Solar II Independent Power Project (Manah ll IPP) in Manah, Sultanate of Oman. The 500MW solar plant is expected to be operational by 2025 and will be backed by a 20-year power purchase agreement with PWP, contributing to Oman's goal of achieving 30 percent renewable energy in its electricity mix by 2030.
This project complements our existing capabilities and track record in the region. The Salalah Independent Water and Power Plant, the only integrated and energy-efficient power and water plant in the Dhofar region of the Sultanate of Oman, is 40% owned by Sembcorp.
