Prysmian wins Kuwait grid contracts worth $57mn
Italian cable company to install 210km high voltage underground system.
Prysmian Group has won two new orders valued at more than EUR 50m for work on Kuwait’s transmission system expansion.
As part of the contract awarded by Kuwait Minister for Electricity & Water (MEW), Prysmian will support MEW 06 Jaber Al Ahmed City project, which is a part of the Kuwait power transmission system expansion plan.
The second contract has been awarded by ROBT, a joint venture of Rizzani de Eccher-OHL under a larger scope contract with MPW to support the Jamal Abdel Nasser Street project.
The Jamal Abdel Nasser Street project forms part of the substantial upgrade of one of the main traffic arteries in Kuwait City to expressway status.
This project also includes diversion of a high voltage underground line.
As part of the two contracts, Prysmian will be responsible for design, engineering, procurement, construction, installation and commissioning services of HV underground cable systems for a total of 210km of 132kV cable and related network components for both projects.
Installation work is scheduled to commence in 2015 and is expected to be completed during 2016.
