The consultant will oversee construction, commissioning and testing of the independent power project (IPP), added the Times of Oman report.

The project, the first IPP in Musandam, is being implemented by Musandam Power Company (MPC) on a build-own-operate (BOO) basis under the terms of a power purchase agreement with OPWP, the report said.

MPC also signed in December 2014 an engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contract and long-term service agreement with Wartsila Muscat for building the dual-fuel fired power plant at Tibat in Musandam.

The project's concession period is fixed at 15 years and the power plant will commence operations by the fourth quarter of 2016, according to the report.
