Siemens secures Euro 790-million contract to expand transmission network in Qatar

The Qatar General Electricity and Water Corporation (KAHRAMAA) has awarded a Euro 790 million contract to Siemens for the expansion of the country’s power transmission network. Reportedly, it is the largest contract to date in Qatar. As a part of the deal, Siemens will deliver 35 turnkey super and primary substations for Phase 13 of the Qatar Power Transmission System Expansion project. It will also be responsible for the design, engineering, supply, installation and commissioning of the 400 kV, 220 kV, 132 kV, 66 kV, and 11 kV substations including gas-insulated switchgear, transformers, and control and protection equipment. In addition to Phase 13, Siemens has received a second order from KAHRAMAA valued at nearly Euro 27 million to supply and install over 2,170 medium-voltage switchgear boards. The switchgear will be manufactured in Frankfurt, with the first set of units expected to be operational by end-2017.
