Oman seeks project management consultants for 1GW solar plant

The Oman Power and Water Procurement Company (OPWP) said it has sought requests for proposal (RFPs) from interested bidders to provide project management and supervisory consultancy services for its key solar PV projects - Manah I and Manah II.

It is expected that over two million solar panels will be installed in these two stations, which will be the largest solar panel project for the sultanate.
