Al Rusail Independent Power

Power generation in Oman

  • Al Rusail Independent Power

Al Rusail Power Station is located 40 km west of Muscat in the Rusail Industrial Park, in the Sultanate of Oman. The power station generates up to 665 MW, consisting of eight Frame 9E gas turbines that were installed in four phases between 1984 and 2000. The plant is designed for simple-cycle operation utilizing natural gas as the primary fuel with distillate fuel oil as backup.

Power generated by the plant is sold to OPWP, the state-owned Omani utility, under a long-term power purchase agreement running to March 2022. In October 2011, SMN Power Holding (the holding company for the Al Rusail Power Station) was successfully listed on the Muscat Stock Exchange.
