Al Abdaliyah Integrated Solar Combined Cycle (ISCC)
The Abdaliya Integrated Solar Combined Cycle Project was submitted to PTB Higher Committee, as part of an unsolicited proposal. The project will develop the first solar thermal power plant in Kuwait.
The total capacity of the power plant will be 280 MW, with a solar contribution of 60 MW. The plant’s utilization of solar energy will contribute to fuel saving.
An additional environmental benefit is that annual CO2 emissions will be 48,000 tons less than that emitted in a conventional plant of comparable capacity. The plant will provide services more efficient than that of a conventional combined cycle power plant, with stable continuous power generation. The feasibility study for the project is currently in being developed.
