These powerlinks, which will connect substations serving the Al Wajbah area of Doha, form part of KAHRAMAA’s phase VIII projects for the expansion and development of Qatar’s electricity network to increase its capacity to meet the rapid increase in demand created by the country’s urban and economic development.

Nexans will provide a complete turnkey package for this project, which is due for completion in July 2009. This includes design, development, supply and installation of a total of 96 km of 66kV and 132kV single core cables and accessories.

This project is the latest in Nexans’ long history of collaboration with KAHRAMAA, with the first contract dating back to the 1970s.

The cables will be manufactured in Nexans factories in France and Belgium.
