Saudi's SEC completes maintenance on power transmission lines

Saudi Arabia’s National Electricity Transmission Company, which is affiliated to the Saudi Electricity Company (SEC), has successfully completed maintenance activity to repair and fix power transmission lines between Al-Ras and Riyadh Al-Khabra.

The scope of work included fixing and reconstructing buried and broken network tower bases, which were established by the General Electricity Corporation in 1982, according to the state-run Saudi Press Agency.

The towers holding up the high-voltage transmission lines on the outskirts of Wadi Rumah needed to be fixed because a layer of clay and salt had formed on them over time due to floods in the area.

The team working on the project was able to raise the reliability of the line. The team listed and sorted the disposed materials; conducted laboratory tests on the material removed from the network; and raised the level of the towers above the valley to protect against future erosion and falls during floods.

The team of engineers managed to complete the entire reconstruction project in six months at a minimal cost.
