ligne haute tension

Five projects are currently under way in the Arabian/Persian Gulf for GCCIA (Gulf Cooperation Council Interconnection Authority). GCCIA operates the interconnected power grid that spans a number of Gulf Cooperation Council members - Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, the United Arab Emirates Oman, Kuwait and Qatar. In 2013, Cegelec Saudi, with the support of Omexom, won the contract to maintain 900 km of 400 kV high-voltage lines. They had previously won the contract to deliver safety infrastructure for eight substations and maintain nine 400 kV metal-protected transformer stations.
