Linxon has successfully energized another 220 kV Substation for its client Electricity and Water Authority (EWA) in Bahrain under the 220 kV Substation switchgear works for the BMP 220 kV substation & East Sitra 220 kV BSP substation contract to supply two 220 kV substations needed to modernize a large refinery complex in the East of Bahrain on the Arabian Gulf coast.


 The energized substation, a new 220/33 kV substation includes associated equipment installation and commissioning.

 “I would like to thank the entire Bahrain team for the great job performed.” said Paolo Pozzi, Head of Project Office Bahrain. “Special thanks to the Project Manager and Field Operation team for completing the work in line with high HSE and quality standards.”
