CG wins 400 MW wind farm contract in Saudi Arabia

CG Holdings Belgium NV Systems Division, a wholly-owned subsidiary of CG Power and Industrial Solutions Ltd., bagged a contract for 400 MW wind farm in Saudi Arabia.

The contract is valued at around Euro 12.5 million and involves high-voltage substations that will connect the Dumat Al Jandal wind farm to the Saudi Arabian electricity transmission grid.

Dumat Al Jandal has an installed capacity of 400 MW, thereby rendering it Saudi Arabia’s first large scale onshore wind farm and also the largest so far in the Middle East. A consortium of EDF Renewables and Masdar has undertaken the responsibility of developing the wind farm. They will supply power to the Saudi Power Procurement Company, a subsidiary of the Saudi Electricity Company.

The wind farm in question is situated 560 miles from the north of Riyadh, in the Al Jouf region of North-western Saudi Arabia.
