The company will design, manufacture, deliver and install the substations, helping to upgrade and reinforce the existing 132 kV electricity transmission grid.

The scope of the project will include all electrical engineering works, 12 power transformers, medium- and high-voltage GIS and SCADA/protection systems for the high-voltage substations.

CG anticipates that the project will be complete by August 2014.
