Siemens, a global powerhouse in electronics and electrical engineering operating in the energy, infrastructure, industry and health care sectors, has been awarded a turnkey contract by the Kuwait National Petroleum Co. (KNPC) to supply high-voltage substations at refineries south of the city of Kuwait.
The project, valued at KWD 68.2 million, will provide reliable power supply to two of KNPC’s biggest refineries. The project is scheduled for completion in December 2015.
Under the contract, one of the largest for the Siemens energy transmission business in Kuwait, Siemens will supply and install a 132kV substation AHRF “C” at the Mina Al Ahmadi Refinery (MAA) and a 300/132kV substation MARF “W” at the Mina Abdulla Refinery (MAB), including high-voltage cable connections.
The works will fit in with KNPC’s clean fuels project, which will see a major upgrade and expansion of the MAA and MAB refineries to integrate the company’s refining system into one refining complex. The clean fuels project seeks to make fuel production in Kuwait more environmentally-friendly.
