Saudi Arabia’s Nesma Electric has been awarded a $21.3m engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) substation contract by Saudi Electricity Company (SEC).

The deal will see the firm build a 110/13.8kV substation at King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (KAUST) that will be known as Kaust-2.

Salah Al-Sunaid, Nesma Electric’s deputy general manager, said: “We are committed and honoured to deliver the best services to our prestigious clients.”

The new substation is reportedly on a fast-track construction schedule and the project is being financed by Saudi Aramco and supervised by SEC.

Nesma Electric’s parent, Nesma & Partners Contracting Company, has been involved in some of Saudi’s biggest projects, including the Jabal Omar development in Makkah.
