Approval Information

Electric power generation is considered the company’s principal activity. Its mission is to provide electricity and enough generating capacity using highly reliable and high-readiness production techniques to meet the growing demand for electricity. The company achieves this with an optimum use of resources and investing all capabilities towards reaching its main purpose, i.e., decreasing the cost of electrical power production. The transmitted power produced from the company’s generation stations is regarded as the main source of electrical power in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia with a participation rate of 54% of the total electrical power in 2019.

The Generation activity’s plans focus on the operation and maintenance of the power plants, and reinforcing their capacities and reliabilities to meet the growing demand for electrical power. In this respect, in 2019, the generation activity accomplished many notable achievements, summarized as follows:
• Total energy produced from power stations increased by 12.7% of the energy planned for production during the year.
• Projects to convert the operation of units from diesel to crude oil achieved net savings of about SR 324 million in 2019, which represent the difference between the crude oil and diesel price of the consumed quantities during the year for all converted units since the beginning of the project.
• New capacities estimated at 396 MW were added and with a growth of 0.8% of the total available capacities at the beginning of 2019, as follows:
