Bahrain's Ministry of Electricity and Water Affairs inaugurated a 220kV airport terminal project worth $45.6m (BHD17.2m) on Wednesday, it has been revealed.

The facility, which will feed the new airport terminal building, is only one among 15 similar facilities in the country's Muharraq Governorate, Bahrain News Agency (BNA) reported.

The governorate is also witnessing the development of 48 66kV substations, BNA added.

During the inauguration of the 220kV airport terminal, Dr Abdulhussain Mirza, Electricity and Water Affairs Minister, said that the project supports the country’s efforts to provide the power required for the expansion of Bahrain International Airport, as well as expand Bahrain’s transmission networks.

Swiss company, ABB, reportedly carried out the supply and installation of the facility, while Korean company, HHI, supplied the transformers and Saudi Cables supplied the cables.

Bahrain's Shabu Construction Company completed the civil works of the project and Alkomed Bahrain implemented the electrical cable works. Meanwhile, Irish Consulting Company ESBI supervised the implementation of the project.
