Alfanar a strategic partner for development.
The project is in line with the Kingdom's wider strategy to boost the industries and to become a major producer of phosphate products.
The recent inauguration by King Salman of the various industrial and mining development projects in the Waad Al-Shamal city is set to further strengthen the diversification of industrialization in the Kingdom.
This strategic project is in line with the Kingdom's wider strategy to boost the industries and to become a major producer of phosphate products, including industrial ammonia fertilizer, animal feedstock, plastics and detergents.
"As one of the leading players in providing the power infrastructure of the Kingdom, we are proud to be a strategic partner in developing the critical electrical infrastructure network in the northeastern region of Saudi Arabia serving the power demand of the Waad Al-Shamal City Development and its associated region developments," Alfanar said in a press release.
"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, Alfanar continues to be an integral part of the country's developmental progress."
The electrical infrastructure projects commenced in April 2014 and were successfully connected to the Kingdom's extra-high voltage grid within two years as planned.
The project continues to be the largest-ever power transmission project package of its kind in Saudi Arabia to date.
