Finning Power Systems has been awarded a USD16m (GBP10.4m) framework agreement from Saudi Kayan to provide the emergency power for the Saudi Kayan petrochemical complex.

The site is a joint venture between Saudi Basic Industries and Al-Kayan.

Fluor is providing the engineering, procurement services and construction management for the utilities and offsite facilities for the complex.

Included in this is the provision for approximately 23MW of emergency power supply.

While the plant will use grid electricity for power, the processes are critical so an emergency backup is essential.

Finning Power Systems will be installing and commissioning 15 Caterpillar generator sets, the generator control panels, neutral earthing panels, battery charging systems, the attenuation equipment, fuel tanks and PMS systems.

The power management systems will control all of the 30 substations on the site.

The company will also provide consultancy advice to Fluor and KBR (Singapore) on the plant room build.

There are several different contractors working on the nine plants on the Saudi Kayan petrochemical complex, with Finning dealing with each as part of the agreement.

As part of the utilities contract, Finning will be supplying six 1.6MW, four 2.3MW, two 1MW and one 500kW substations.

The company will also supply KBR (Singapore) with two 1.6MW generators, loadbanks and HV switchgear for the Olefins plant on the site.

Part of the contract with KBR (Singapore) is for a standalone power plant with a specially packaged generator set, which is capable of starting five very large motors for the furnace fans.

These must be kept running at all times.
