Saudi Electricity Plans to Reduce Future Oil Use, Asharq Says
Saudi Electricity Co. (SECO) is investing 5 billion riyals (1.3 billion) in technologies that will allow it to increase output without burning more crude oil, Asharq al- Awsat reported, citing Chief Executive Officer Ali Al Barrak.
Barrak told the London-based pan-Arab daily that the company successfully raised energy efficiency at its PP10 power plant south of the capital Riyadh by 50 percent without consuming more crude oil. The state-owned utility will continue implementing this at other plants, the newspaper said.
