Linxon has won an order from Samsung C&T in Saudi Arabia to engineer, procure and construct a 380 kV substation project to connect Tanajib cogeneration and desalination project to the Saudi electricity grid.

Located in Tanajib in the Eastern Province of Saudi Arabia, the new 380 kV GIS substation will feed the plant that is supplying electricity, steam, and desalinated water to the new oil and gas facilities in the area owned by Aramco.

“We are honoured to have been selected by Samsung C&T as their partner of choice for this strategic project for Aramco”, said Stefan Reisacher, CEO of Linxon. “We will be contributing with our expertise in advanced substation technology and support building a sustainable future”.

The cogeneration and seawater desalination plant will have a net capacity of approximately 940 MW of electricity generation, a steam output of approximately 1,084 tons per hour, and a desalinated water output of approximately 19,470 cubic meters per day.

The Linxon supply consists of an EPC (Engineering, Procurement and Construction) contract for the 380 kV GIS substation with all necessary protection and control systems. Linxon will be executing this on a turnkey basis including associated construction activities, equipment installation and commissioning.
