• Kuwait to tender construction of 14 substations at Mina al-Ahmadi refinery
  • It is not yet known whether the project will be divided into packages that will be awarded separately

Kuwait is planning to tender the construction of 14 substations at the Mina al-Ahmadi refinery in late 2015 or early 2016, according to an industry source.

The new substations will replace old substations that have been deemed “old and obsolete” by Kuwait National Petroleum Company (KNPC).

It is not yet known whether the KNPC project will be divided into packages that will be awarded separately.

The project management consultant on the project is UK-based Amec Foster Wheeler.

Plans to tender the scheme for 14 new substations come in the wake of a contract award in May that saw India’s Larsen & Toubro win a KD21.8m ($71.8m) contract to build a substation at the Mina al-Ahmadi refinery.
