Kuwait’s $241m Clean Fuels Project (CFP) substation package is progressing on schedule and should be completed by January 2016, according to a source close to the project.

The contract was won by Germany’s Siemens in July 2013.

The package includes substations that will be built on the sites of the Mina Abdullah and Mina al-Ahmadi refineries in Kuwait, which are both being overhauled as part of the CFP.

Its scope includes the installation of a 132kV substation at Mina al-Ahmadi and a 300/132kV substation at Mina Abdullah.

Earlier in July, the head of Kuwait’s state-owned downstream operator, Kuwait National Petroleum Company (KNPC), said the CFP is 27 per cent complete.

The scheme aims to upgrade and expand Kuwait’s Mina al-Ahmadi and Mina Abdullah refineries. It saw three packages worth a total of $12bn awarded during 2014.
