Company will supply technology for stabilisation of high-voltage transmission network in Saudi Arabia

Siemens Energy recently announced that it has received an order worth EUR65 million from Saudi Arabia to supply three turnkey static reactive-power compensation systems. It will supply three static Var compensators (SVCs) for different high-voltage levels to Saudi Electric Company (SEC) for stabilisation of the country’s 60-Hertz power transmission network.

According to Siemens Energy, the parallel compensation systems will be deployed at three sites in the Hiteen, Qassim and Afif substations and are scheduled to be ready for operation between mid-2011 and early 2012.

“We are pleased that our field-proven technology will be deployed to stabilise the Saudi power transmission network,” said Udo Niehage, CEO of the Power Transmission Division of Siemens Energy.

The three systems ordered are intended for the 380-kV, 132-kV and 33-kV voltage levels and will have a dynamic compensation capacity of as much as 800 MVAr.
