The project covers all passenger terminals including the private aviation terminals, the Airport’s industrial zone, support facilities, water transfer and treatment plants, substations, airfield and district cooling plants.
ENGIE will perform an energy audit and consultancy work to identify and develop energy-saving measures that will reduce the facility’s energy use, cost of operation and maintenance. The project comes as part of RAC’s efforts to enhance energy efficiency at KKIA as per the standards of the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO), the General Authority of Civil Aviation (GACA), the Saudi Electricity Company (SEC) and the Saudi Standards, Metrology and Quality Organization (SASO).
“We are partnering with a global low-carbon energy provider to achieve our vision and contribute positively to the environment and keep it safe for future generations,” remarked Eng. Mohammed bin Abdullah Al-Maghlouth, CEO, RAC.
