Kuwait’s Ministry of Electricity and Water (MEW) awarded Siemens Energy a contract to provide maintenance of 116 high-voltage substations. The five-year service contract represents Siemens Energy’s largest service agreement in the power transmission sector in the Middle East. The project aims to ensure reliable power supply throughout Kuwait.
The substations will undergo maintenance to enhance their reliability and safety and will provide power to residential and commercial areas. The service agreement covers preventive maintenance and emergency repair of the substations, including switchgears of different voltage levels, power transformers and various assets in each substation.
A substation is key to power supply as it is used for transmitting and distributing electricity to distant locations. It is for that reason that safety, security, reliability and efficiency are essential. Through preventative maintenance Siemens Energy will ensure that the people of Kuwait have a stable and reliable source of energy. Around a quarter of the power transmitted in the country utilizes Siemens Energy’s technology.
