K&M was engaged by the Samra Electric Power Company (SEPCO) to assist with the evaluation of bids for the construction of the Samra Phase III capacity addition on an EPC basis. The Phase III capacity addition would add 240 MW of gas-fired power generating capacity in simple-cycle configuration to the Samra power station. Kuljian had been hired by SEPCO to prepare the EPC contract and tender documents, manage the procurement process, and evaluate the final bids. K&M’s role was to provide an independent evaluation of the five responsive bids which were submitted. K&M reviewed Kuljian’s evaluation and completed a revised bid evaluation based on modeling the costs of each bid in both simple cycle and combined cycle operational modes. K&M also performed sensitivity analysis on the proposed plant configurations to determine the least-cost bid under a range of operating scenarios. K&M’s report was accepted by SEPCO and K&M’s recommended winner successfully developed twin gas-fired Alstom turbines to add almost 286 MW of capacity to the Samra Power Station.
