Siemens energizes high-voltage substations at KNPC’s Clean Fuels Project in Kuwait

The Clean Fuels Project involves the upgrade and integration of the MAB and MAA refineries, located 60 and 45 kilometers south of Kuwait respectively. As part of a KD68 million contract, Siemens delivered and installed a 132kV AHRF “C” substation at MAA and a 300/132kV MARF “W” substation at MAB. The upgrade, which provides the refineries with their own dedicated substations, allows for an increase in the combined output of the two refineries to 800,000 barrels per day Siemens also provided 250 kilometers of cabling for the project, equivalent to the distance from Kuwait City to the Saudi Arabian border and back.
“We are excited about reaching this important milestone. With two high-voltage substations completely dedicated to the Mina Al Ahmadi and Mina Abdullah refineries, power is now provided to the oil facilities to meet the increasing demand. These new substations will now ensure a reliable and stable electricity supply for the refineries,” said Adrian Wood, CEO of Siemens in Kuwait.
“Again, we would like to thank our customer KNPC for placing their trust in Siemens’ technology and the company’s track record of successful execution and on-time delivery,” Wood added.
The Clean Fuels Project is one of KNPC’s strategic projects, seeking to transform the two refineries into an integrated merchant refining complex that meets the diversified requirements of the world oil market. It is set for completion in 2018.
