LBS Through its JV LBPKSA Announces Power Generation Contract to Help Construct the Floating Industrial City OXAGON in NEOM

Louis Berger Services (LBS) through its joint venture of LBPKSA, recently began a power generation contract using Cummins generator technology to help support construction of the housing camp at OXAGON as one of NEOM’s cities, the futuristic mega-city that’s being built in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. OXAGON will be a 7-kilometer-wide floating city, making it the largest floating structure in the world.

As the Engineering, Procurement, and Construction (EPC) contractor, LBPKSA will design, supply, and install a Containerized Diesel Power Plant to the Saudi Arabian Trading & Construction Company (SATCO). Because the power plant will operate on prime power applications, the system will be able to reliably supply constant power operation—24 hours a day and 365 days a year—to OXAGON’s developers and residents who are building the city.

The Diesel Power Plant for OXAGON marks LBPKSA’s third power generation contract to support the visionary NEOM region. LBPKSA has provided green power solutions to SATCO and the Al Tamimi Group to help build two residential camps (NEOM Construction Village 2) in NEOM that will house 30,000 people.

For SATCO, LBPKSA engineered, supplied, installed, and tested/commissioned a hybrid power plant that integrates solar photovoltaic (PV) power technology, including an automatic robotic cleaning system with conventional power and battery energy storage. The hybrid power system will reduce Carbon Dioxide (CO2) emissions by 6,491.7 tons per year and decrease diesel fuel consumption by 2,801,100 liters per year.

LBPKSA designed, built, installed, and tested/commissioned a solar PV powerplant for the Al Tamimi Group that features its own robotic cleaning system, in integration with the existing conventional power plant. The solar PV technology will reduce CO2 emissions by 8,093 tons per year and decrease diesel fuel consumption by 3,492,300 liters per year.


LBPKSA, a joint venture of Louis Berger Services and KFB Holding Group/EXAP Contracting, operates as an EPC power projects contractor to provide reliable and optimal power solutions and services for off-grid locations (remote & rural areas). We form a synergistic team to offer new ideas and technologies for greater efficiency, productivity, and outreach in austere environments, with capabilities spanning traditional and containerized/modular power plants burning fuels to include natural gas and crude oil/ HFO, as well as renewable power including solar/PV, battery storage, wind, and hydrogen.
