Posted on May 23, 2013

Siemens’ Energy Sector has been awarded two contracts valued at approximately €200 million by Saudi Electricity Co. (SEC). The first contract includes the supply of five SGT6-2000E gas turbines, which will add 388 MW to the Rafha, Qurayyat and Arar areas, helping to address the Kingdom's rapidly rising power demand.                                     

The second signing is for a turnkey project to build the Al-Kharj 2 380 kV substation. Under the contract, the Energy sector will supply all key components such as gas insulated switchgear, transformers, line reactors, switchgear, protection systems and telecommunication systems, and will also provide civil engineering and substation construction.

The substation will enhance the reliability and security of power supply while addressing the growing demand for electricity in the Al-Kharj region, the company said.
