Saudi Arabian National Grid's electricity network spans 84,000km
Saudi Electricity Co subsidiary says 1,093 conversion stations are being used for 13,000 cities and villages across the kingdom
National Grid, a subsidiary of Saudi Electricity Company, said its electricity grid covered 84,000km and served customers in more than 13,000 cities and villages across Saudi Arabia.
The number of National Grid’s conversion stations has reached 1,093, and the firm has 3,465 transformers with a capacity of more than 424,000MVA in operation across the kingdom.
Acting chief executive officer of National Grid, Eng Waleed Al-Saadi, said the company's plans and strategies aimed to serve Saudi Arabia’s Vision 2030 programme, as well as the business goals of Saudi Electricity Company.
Saudi Electricity Company’s strategic programme envisions Saudi Arabia as the regional hub for electricity linkage between Asia and Africa by linking with Egypt's network after the completion of the Gulf electrical interconnection system, due to the kingdom's position between the two continents, Saudi Arabia’s state news agency, SPA, reported.
