Deir Ammar 450 MW Power Station
Middle East and North AfricaOctober 22, 2020
K&M was engaged by the Higher Council for Privatization in Lebanon to assist with the preparation and procurement of two power project transactions: the privatization of the existing 450 MW CCGT Deir Ammar power plant and the development of a proposed 450 MW greenfield power project. Both projects would operate as Independent Power Producers (IPPs). K&M assessed the power supply and demand needs in Lebanon and analyzed the feasibility of various fuel supply options for both projects, including the possible use of Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG). K&M conducted a detailed technical due diligence of the Deir Ammar power plant to assess its technical and commercial performance, operations and maintenance procedures, and the state of the plant’s equipment, facility, site, and associated infrastructure. Due to external political factors, both transactions were cancelled and K&M’s engagement was concluded after completion of the Deir Ammar due diligence report.
