Siemens has been awarded a contract to upgrade the Kingdom of Bahrain’s energy infrastructure with a new high-voltage power transmission network

Siemens has been awarded a contract to upgrade the Kingdom of Bahrain’s energy infrastructure with a new high-voltage power transmission network.

The company  will introduce an upgraded 400 kilovolt (kV) network, which will form a reliable and stable backbone for the country’s electricity transmission grid, and cater for increasing electricity demand from population and industrial growth.

It will supply, install and commission three 400/220kV substations including control and protection, civil works and cable re-routing, to be constructed at Al Hidd, Riffa and Umm Al Hassam. The three substations are expected to be completed within two years.

The deal was awarded by the Electricity and Water Authority (EWA) in Bahrain.

“An efficient and robust electricity network is an essential part of Bahrain’s vision to develop sustainable, world-class infrastructure. Upgrading to 400 kilovolts represents a milestone in the country’s transmission network, boosting the voltage to serve increasing demand, improve security of supply and stability, and strengthen the national grid,” said Wolfgang Braun, senior executive vice president, energy management, Siemens Middle East. “Siemens has been a development partner to Bahrain for 65 years and we are proud to be implementing our technology in support of economic prosperity.”
