- PRESS RELEASE
Siemens, the global powerhouse in electronics and electrical engineering operating in the energy, infrastructure, industry and healthcare sectors, announced that it has signed a Dhs400m contract to build a new substation in Abu Dhabi in the United Arab Emirates that will help meet an increase in load electricity demand for new infrastructure and industrial areas in the eastern region of the emirate.
The deal follows last year's signing of a contract with Transco for the construction of the 400kV Mahawi substation, the first of its kind to be developed solely by Siemens in the UAE.
Siemens has been executing contracts with Transco since 1976. Wolfgang Braun, Head of Siemens Power Transmission Middle East, said, "The award of Shamkha substation by Transco further strengthens our strong and long-standing ties with the company and demonstrates the faith the company places in Siemens to deliver challenging projects of high quality and on time."
The solutions offered by Siemens for the turnkey substation will consist of 400-kV gas-insulated switchgear (GIS), 132-kV switchgear, 33-kV switchgear, and 500MVA and 120MVA power transformers, together with complete balance of plant equipment including civil works.
