Siemens wins $41m UAE power supply order
Erlangen, March 13, 2010
Siemens Energy has received an order worth approximately EUR30 million ($41.28 million) from Dubai-based Federal Electricity and Water Authority (Fewa) as part of the latter’s power supply network expansion.
The order from the UAE covers the supply of a turnkey substation in Fujeirah, one of the northern emirates. Four substations will also be modernised. The power supply project is scheduled for completion within 15 months.
The turnkey substation for the 132- and 33-kilovolt (kV) voltage levels will be supplied together with Siemens transformers, protection equipment, and instrumentation and controls.
It will be erected in the town of Qidfa in the emirate of Fujeirah and will in the future strengthen the power supply network in the north of the UAE. Four existing substations will also be modernised in the neighboring emirates of Ras Al Khaimah and Ajman.
“We’re pleased that our proven technology will be deployed to stabilize the power transmission network in the northern emirates,” said Wolfgang Braun, general manager within the power transmission and power distribution divisions of Siemens Energy in the lower Gulf region.
In total, Siemens will supply 10 bays 132-kV and 63 panels 33-kV for gas-insulated switchgear as well as two 90 MVA transformers from its production plants in Berlin, Dresden and Frankfurt, a statement said. – TradeArabia News Service
