Substation work retendered

13 October 2006
The Ministry of Energy (Electricity & Water) has invited seven international contractors to submit bids by 21 November for a retendered contract to build the Siddiq W 300/132-kV substation and expand the existing 132/11-kV Ahmadi W substation to 300 kV.

The scope of works on

the estimated $80 million-100 million contract covers

the supply and installation of

the two substations over 24 months. Europe's ABB was low bidder at KD 19 million

($66 million) when bids were

submitted for the Siddiq W project late last year (MEED 15:12:05). The Ahmadi W job was first tendered in 2000 (MEED 10:3:00). Both original schemes were

cancelled after the client decided to package them together.
