K&M was engaged by the Samra Electric Power Company (SEPCO) to provide Owner’s Engineer services for the addition of a 140 MW steam cycle to the Samra III 2×143 MW gas-fired power station to convert the unit from a simple cycle to a combined cycle system. K&M provided a full range of engineering and consulting services to assist SEPCO throughout the design, procurement, and construction phases of the project through its commissioning and commercial operation. K&M assisted with the power station conceptual design and layout, and development of technical specification to be included in the RFP for the selection of the EPC Contractor. K&M also drafted all other tender documentation for the competitive selection of an EPC contractor, and managed the entire bidding process, bid evaluation, and negotiation of the EPC contract with the winning bidder.
After procuring an EPC contractor, K&M reviewed the EPC Contractor’s design documentation and, at a later stage, deployed a team of technical experts to the project site to provide on-site oversight and management of the EPC contractor’s construction work. K&M oversaw the EPC contractor’s startup and commissioning activities through to the declaration of the Commercial Operations Date in June 2015. K&M will continue to provide technical support to SEPCO throughout the EPC warranty period and assisted in resolution of contractual dispute between SEPCO and their EPC contractor.
