$34M set aside for new transformer stations and other projects
Saudi Arabia: Saudi Electricity Company (SEC), the largest power producer in Saudi Arabia, has recently allocated $34 million for setting up new transformer stations, power plants and electricity transmission networks in a bid to boost the kingdom’s power infrastructure.
Within the plan, Larsen & Toubro (L&T) has won a contract from SEC for building a 132 kV double circuit transmission line besides 132 kV cabling in the Rafah, Arar, and Sakaka areas of the kingdom, reports Trade Arabia.
The country expects peak electricity to hit 90,000 MW in 2022, while the installed capacity is around 70,000 MW at present.
