MUSCAT, August 12, 2020

Mazoon Electricity, the leading electricity provider in Oman, said it has energised several projects during the first half of the year in a bid to boost efficiency, enhance reliability and expand serving capability. 
These developments will add value to the services the company extends and will contribute to enhancing its overall capacity, said a statement from the Omani company. 
It comes as a part of Mazoon Electricity’s persistent endeavours to improve the performance level of the electrical networks in the various governorates that it provides services in, the statement added. 
Despite the Covid-19 challenges, Mazoon’s first half performance has led to robust operational successes, projects, and upgradations, said a company spokesman. 
Mazoon Electricity completed the energising of Al Haram and Al Harradi substations with a voltage of 11/33 kV and a capacity of 3 x 20 MVA for each one, and Al-Aqeer substation with a voltage of 11/33 kV and a capacity of 2 x 20 MVA in the Wilayat of Barka in South Al Batinah Governorate. 
The energising of the new station will efficiently support and meet the demands of the increased load.
