Siemens awarded triple substation deal in Dubai
132/11 kV substations as part of Deira Islands project
Siemens has been awarded a contract by UAE master developer Nakheel PJSC for the turnkey construction of three electrical substations in Dubai.
The three 132/11 kV substations are scheduled for completion in the first half of 2017, and each comprises three 50 MVA power transformers, eight bays of 132 kV gas-insulated switchgears, 71 panels of 11 kV air-insulated switchgears, and control and protection, the manufacturer said in a statement.
The substations are an essential component of Nakheel’s Deira Islands development, which will see the construction of four man-made islands off the coast of Dubai’s Deira District.
