GE Energy Connections said one of its units has won a contract from India-based Larsen & Toubro (L&T) to support seven 66/11kV substations at Lusail City mega-development in Doha, Qatar.

GE's Grid Solutions business will be providing both the main relays marking the exclusive provision of all protection equipment for the substations.

In addition, more than 400 protection panels and the full DS Agile substation automation system for the seven substations are provided by Grid Solutions.

These substations, protected and automated by GE, are located in Qetafian Island South, West1, West2, Wadi1, Wadi2, North and Marina. The panels are scheduled for supply by April next year and all the seven substations will be energised by the end of 2017.

Essa M Kaldari, the chief executive of Lusail Real Estate Development Company, said: "It is the smart city of the future that reflects the Qatar National Vision 2030 to drive economic diversification. As the home venue of the Fifa World Cup 2022, the mega-development is setting new benchmarks in infrastructure and amenities.

"With its proven expertise in supporting Qatar’s power sector, GE serves as an ideal partner to drive the electricity infrastructure for the development."

Mohammed Mohaisen, the president and chief executive of Grid Solutions (Middle East and Central Asia), said: "The contract for Lusail City marks a first for GE in the country as we provide an integrated protection and automation solution that is completely equipped by GE and designed locally by our Qatar-based Grid Solutions team."
