The project has been brought forward into round 1 of the National Renewable Energy Programme (NREP) to replace Midyan, which has fallen behind schedule, as the country's first utility-scale wind power project.
The Renewable Energy Project Development Office (REPDO) said Midyan is still in pre-development, but it "hopes to tender it soon."
In the meantime, the 24 companies previously shortlisted for Midyan will be carried forward to Dumat Al Jandal, alongside any newly qualified companies.
The new project will be developed under the same terms as Midyan, on a build, own and operate (BOO) basis, with no state funding but backed up by a 20-year power purchase agreement.
The deadline for applications is 10 August. The main tender is due to be launched on 29 August, with a final submission date in January 2018.
