Nesma Electric, a subsidiary of Jeddah-based Nesma Holding, has won a contract to supply a new 110/13.8kV substation at Jeddah Islamic Sea Port. The company said that expanding demand for cargo through the port and increasing port activity to deal with the queue of ships transporting goods to Saudi’s west coast have raised concernss of an electrical overload at the port.
The new substation will add almost 225MVA in capacity to the equpment currently in use, thereby reducing the likelihood of a large-scale outage and inherent financial loss. An agreement for the new substation was signed by the president of Seaports Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, Abdulaziz Al-Tuwaijri, and deputy general manager of Nesma Electric, Salah Al Sunaid. Guests including Makkah region governor Prince Khalid Alfaisal and Jeddah governor HRH Prince Mishaal Bin Majed Bin Abdulaziz Alsaud.
