It will work with Toledo Arabia Company on the engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contract for the Saudi Riyadh Cooling Company (SRCC). The value of SNC-Lavalin’s share in the contract is estimated at approximately CA$98m (£47m).
SNC-Lavalin is responsible for the design, procurement, construction and commissioning of two district cooling plants, with a total capacity of 38,000 refrigeration tonnes (RT), equal to 134MW, including a thermal storage tank with an output capacity of 5,000RT.
Construction is scheduled to start this month, with chilled water production for the first cooling plant planned for August 2017 followed by the second in September 2018.
“In addition to meeting the demand for cooling at the King Khalid International Airport, the district cooling solution will lower energy requirements while reducing greenhouse gas emissions and sound pollution,” said Ian Edwards, President, Infrastructure.
