Areva wins Algerian refinery job

01 May 2008
France’s Areva T&D has won a Eur32m ($50m) contract to carry out electrical upgrade work at the Skikda refinery in northwest Algeria.

The work covers the installation of gas-insulated switchgear and power transformers in order to optimise power supply to the refinery, which is the country’s largest.

The contract is similar to a $106m contract won by France’s Cegelec in April to expand the electrical network at the Arzew refinery in the west (MEED 16:4:08).

Both refineries are due to be upgraded under a $1.5bn programme to expand their capacity and modernise their systems (MEED 25:4:08).

The client on all the projects is Naftec, the refining arm of state energy company Sonatrach.
