Saudi Electricity Company (SEC) has signed contracts for two projects worth $225.6m (SAR 846m) as part of its efforts to ensure efficient power supply to Madinah.

The new projects will boost the capacity of the Al-Kadmi central transformer station in Jazan and the central transformer station in east Abha, SEC Executive President Ali Saleh Al-Barrak, who signed the contracts, told Arab News.

The contracts also include erection of transmission towers with a capacity above 380 kilowatts linking the Rabigh power generation station with Madinah’s supply network, which should guarantee uninterrupted power supply to Madinah.

Al-Barrak added that the projects, which are to be completed in 29 months since the date of the contract award, should also enhance the transmission capacity to meet the needs of rising levels of consumption.
