The demand for electricity in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA) is currently rising at an annual rate of 8 per cent and is expected to triple to 121,000 MW by 2032. This is the reason why the Saudi Electricity Company (SEC) has launched a programme to increase its installed power capacity. The Qurayyah IPP1 Plant is the third of six planned IPP projects in the KSA. The private sector adds around 11,000 MW of capacity to the electrical grid. SEC will buy all the power produced by the plant under a power purchase agreement.
The Government of the Sultanate of Oman has initiated a successful program for the restructuring and development of private sector involvement in the electricity and related water sector.

The site is wholly contained within the ring fence of an existing 2x300 MW coal-fired power station owned by Tejo Energia (TE).
