Tadawul-listed Saudi Electricity Company (SEC) is implementing eight projects in Saudi Arabia’s Hail region with contracts worth more than $159m (SAR597m).

The projects aim to strengthen the electric service system and keep pace with the increasing growth in energy demand from construction, development, and economic projects in the region.

A number of projects have been fully completed, while the rest are still in the process of completion and delivery, according to the state-run Saudi Press Agency.

The projects include connecting an electric station to the south of Hail in order to reduce loads and increase the reliability of the network.

It also includes a project to strengthen electricity at the Hulaifa station to overcome the voltage drops in the city of Hulaifa.

Other projects include the establishment of the Azim electric station; meeting the load requirements of regions south of the Shannan Governorate; and a project to replace the current metres with smart metres, which can enable remote reading.

Projects also include the delivery of electric services to new subscribers; switching from overhead networks to ground networks; the transfer of loads from the loaded feeders, and strengthening networks to cope with increased loads during the summer; as well as projects to connect transfer stations to the distribution networks.

The projects aim to distribute the loads between the stations, increase network reliability, replace outdated distribution networks, and put in place updated connectors and equipment.
