ZURICH, March 19 Swiss engineering group ABB
said on Wednesday it has won an order worth $110
million from the Saudi Electricity Company to improve the power
infrastructure in the country's western region.
The order is for the supply and construction of substations
that will link the Taif East Governorate, a part of the Mecca
region, to the national transmission grid.
"These substations will strengthen the grid and enhance
transmission capacity, bringing much-needed electricity to the
region to meet growing domestic and industrial demand," said
Claudio Facchin, head of ABB's Power Systems division.
