Construction of 115/13.8KV Substation in KJO, Al Khafji, Saudi Arabia

Updated: Mar 15

ENEVO Group’s Saudi registered subsidiary, Romelectro Arabia, is reaching the final milestones of our biggest project since entering the Middle East market: the construction of a new 115kV Substation for the grid connection of the Khafji Joint Operation (KJO) gas plant.


A critical project in which we had the role of EPC, the client is Saudi Electricity Company (SEC) and the end-user is a joint venture between ARAMCO and Kuwait Gulf Oil Company. Most of the construction and equipment installation works had to be performed during the Covid-19 pandemic, making it a doubly challenging project.


With support from our client and the hard work of our team, both in Saudi Arabia and Romania, we managed to find solutions to all the challenges brought on by these extraordinary circumstances and we’re on track for commissioning the substation during 2022.
