Shuaiba cable contract

The Saudi Cable Company has won a Riyal236.5m ($63m) contract to manufacture a high voltage transmission line to export power from the 1000 MW Shuaiba power plant in Saudi Arabia. The company will provide a 110 km twin circuit overhead transmission line for the $1.6bn power plant project.

Saudi Consolidated Electric Company-West, which is developing the plant, recently signed a Riyal205m contract with Hitachi Construction to build a 500 MW power transformer station for the project.
