CG Power and Industrial Solutions has received a contract valued at € 12.5 million for high-voltage substations that will connect the Dumat Al Jandal wind farm to the Saudi Arabian electricity transmission grid. With an installed capacity of 400MW, Dumat Al Jandal will be Saudi Arabia's first large-scale onshore wind farm and the largest so far in the Middle East.
The wind farm is being developed by a consortium of EDF Renewables and Masdar that will supply power to the Saudi Power Procurement Company. CG will design and build high-voltage substations that will connect the wind farm to the Saudi National Grid. The wind farm is located about 900 kilometres north of Riyadh in the Al Jouf region of northwestern Saudi Arabia.
