New Electricity Transmission Projects Aimed at Meeting Pilgrims’ Electricity Needs During the Hajj Season.

JEDDAH: Ziad bin Mohammed Al-Shiha, CEO of the Saudi Electricity Co. (SEC), inspected new electricity projects in Makkah and Madinah on Wednesday.

The projects include 13 transmission as well as various distribution projects aimed at meeting pilgrims’ electricity needs during the Hajj season.

While inspecting the company’s preparations and its plans to face the expected surges in demand, Al-Shiha said that projects were completed in accordance with the directives of King Salman, Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman and the Minister of Interior Prince Abdul Aziz bin Saud bin Naif.

Various electrical projects were planned by the end of last year’s Hajj season and were established over the past months through Saudi competence and expertise and the company’s distinguished personnel. They are a part of the company’s strategy to check the reliability of the electrical services in all the sites,” he added.

Al-Shiha also visited the SEC’s offices in Mina, Arafat and Muzdalifah, and discussed details of plans for this year’s Hajj season with the company’s officials.

SEC engineers and technicians have carried out the maintenance and safety program for the generation of plants in preparation for the Hajj season. They provided a sufficient number of units to cover the expected maximum loads.

The company’s teams also reviewed all technical standards and plans so it would be possible to export more electricity from the central and southern regions to backup the western region’s electrical system, if necessary.
