Description: With this project, Qatar Petroleum is achieving its strategic plan to overhaul the foreseeable power redistribution network at a major crude oil storage hub, which is critical to the function of Halul Island. This successful project ensures the reliability of the power supply for the island through its 33/11kV PDS in Halul’s central industrial building area. The new PDS will be fed directly from Tempest power station via new 33kV cables. The substation feeds power to the crude oil pumping stations and other utilities, including desalination plants, and generates significant revenue for Qatar’s economy.
