Ireland-based Shanahan Engineering has been awarded a services contract by Shandong Electric Power Construction Engineering Company (SEPCO-2) for the Jazan Integrated Gasification Combined Cycle (JIGCC) Power Block project in Jazan, Saudi Arabia, Trade Arabia reported.

Under the agreement, Shanahan will provide both a commissioning management team and a commissioning management program to test and commission the JIGCC plant, the company said in a statement.

Zhang Ting, the project director at SEPCO-2, said: “We had selected Shanahan due to its robust techno-commercial proposal combined with its accumulated experience in commissioning combined cycle power plants, particularly in Saudi Arabia, as well as their overriding attention to HS&E and quality compliance, which are critical on such projects with Saudi Aramco.”

The Jazan plant will generate over 2,500 MW, across five blocks, using Siemens SGT-6000F technology, Shanahan CEO and Managing Director James Greaney said.
