Siemens wins Abu Dhabi substation contract
Abu Dhabi, October 24, 2012
Siemens said it has won a Dh400 million ($109 million) contract to build a new substation on a turnkey basis at Shamka for Abu Dhabi Transmission & Dispatch Company (Transco) to help meet rising power demand in the emirate's industrial areas.
The solutions offered by Siemens for the turnkey substation will include 400-kV gas-insulated switchgear (GIS), 132-kV switchgear, 33-kV switchgear, and 500MVA and 120MVA power transformers, together with complete balance of plant equipment including civil works.
Transco, which is fully-owned by Abu Dhabi Water & Electricity Authority (Adwea), said as per the contract, Siemens will design, engineer and build the Shamkha 400/132/33 kV substation.
The deal follows last year’s signing of a contract with Transco for the construction of the 400kV Mahawi substation, the first of its kind to be developed solely by Siemens in the UAE. The global technology giant has been executing contracts with Transco since 1976.
Wolfgang Braun, the head of Siemens Power Transmission Middle East, said: “The award of Shamkha substation by Transco further strengthens our strong and long-standing ties with the company and demonstrates the faith the company places in Siemens to deliver challenging projects of high quality and on time.”-TradeArabia News Service
