Project Name : Al-Khobar II 750MW Power Plant (Civil Work)
Location : Azizia (South of Al-Khobar), Saudi Arabia
Client : Saline Water Conversion Corporation (SWCC)
Construction Period : 31 Months

The Al-Khobar II power plant, coupled to a 50-mgpd desalination plant, greatly increased the power generating capacity of Saudi Arabia’s Eastern Province. This was needed in order to meet growing demand due to the unprecedented expansion of the Dhahran/Al-Khobar/Dammam conurbation. The civil scope of the work included the turnkey design, procurement and construction of all non-technical buildings for this important project.


As a member of a large international consortium, the civil works carried out by MAC constituted 10% of a 600 million US Dollar power and desalination plant. The design and approval of equipment and material of the non-technical buildings had to be integrated with the design of the rest of the works and approved by five different members of the consortium as well as by the client and the client’s consultant.
