Jeddah, February 2, 2012
ABB, a leading in power and automation technologies, has received contracts worth more than $250 million from the Saudi Electricity Company (SEC) to build new substations and upgrade existing ones, a report said.
One of the new gas-insulated switchgear (GIS) substations will be located southwest of Al-Hassa in the eastern region, said the report in Arab News.
It will transmit an additional 2,000 megawatt (MW) of electricity from a new gas-fired power plant near SEC's existing Qurayyah power station, it added.
A total of nine other substations will be located in cities in the central region, including Riyadh, according to the report.
