Oman's biggest solar power project has secured $275 million in funding from a consortium led by ACWA Power, GIC for the 500 MW solar photovoltaic independent power project (IPP) in Ibri.

A syndicate of six international and local banks will provide the $275 million senior debt.

ACWA Power stated that Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank, Bank Muscat, Riyad Bank, Siemens Bank, Standard Chartered Bank, and Warba Bank helped structure the largest utility-scale solar project in the Sultanate on a 16.5-year door-to-door tenor.

Rajit Nanda, the Chief Investment Officer of ACWA Power, said, “The project which is the largest utility-scale solar project in Oman will also be the first renewable energy financing for AIIB in the GCC region, paving the way for a stronger partnership with the Beijing based international multilateral bank in the future.”
