Saudi Arabia’s Alfanar Construction Company has won a SR134m ($35.8m) contract to connect the Kandarah substation with Jeddah’s electricity grid.

The company is due to complete the work on the interconnection by May 2011.

Alfanar is now working on the 380/110/13.8kV Al-Kandarah substation. The engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contract is worth SR500m. Alfanar won the work in June 2008. It is due to finish work on the scheme in mid-2010.

The substation will supply power to Jeddah.

In August, Alfanar won two contracts worth a total of SR364 to build substations in the kingdom. It will build a 380/132/13.8kV substation at Jizan and another 132/13.8kV substation at King Abdulaziz Medical City.

Saudi Electricity Company is the client.
