Al Fanar has revealed that it is a strategic partner in developing the critical electrical infrastructure network in the North Eastern region of the Kingdom serving the power demand of the Waad Al Shamal City development and its associated region developments.

By constructing the five Extra High Voltage 380kv Transmission Bulk Supply Points, in the most strategic locations in the North Eastern region of Saudi Arabia, Al Fanar said that it continues to be an integral part of the Kingdom’s economic progress.

The electrical infrastructure projects commenced in April 2014 and were successfully connected to the Kingdom’s Extra High Voltage grid within 2 years as planned. The project continues to be the largest ever power transmission project package of its kind in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia till date.

Abdullah Al Otaibi, President, alfanar Construction, said “the development of Waad Al Shammal city as an industrial corridor requires collaborative efforts of various stakeholders from Government as well as public and private sectors.”

A mega project of this kind and size requires a sustainable and reliable source of power for which alfanar is proud to get this opportunity from the Saudi Electricity Co., which paved way to be part of Waad al Shamaal City development by constructing a significant part of the electrical grids infrastructure.”

Al Fanar is one of the few organization to have partnered with the Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA) for the construction of High Voltage and Extra High Voltage level substations (380kV).
