The Saudi Development and Reconstruction Program for Yemen (SDRPY) has launched a project to improve electricity networks, raise efficiency, enhance capacity, and look into high electrical loads and power outages in Al-Mahra governorate
The project will serve 10,000 beneficiaries in the Al-Sadah and Al-Souq areas of Al-Ghaydah directorate in Al-Mahra.
Foundation stone for the project was laid by Al-Mahra Governor Mohammed Ali Yasser in the presence of Minister of State, Sheikh Mohammed Abdullah Keda; Al-Mahra Secretary-General Salem Abdullah Nimer, and director of SDRPY Al-Mahra Office, Eng. Abdullah Basulaiman.
With the electricity project, the overload on medium- and low-voltage networks in residential and commercial districts will be reduced, resulting in the ease in flow of power through the electricity grid. It will also reduce interruptions, strengthen resilience to weather conditions, and enable absorption of new loads.
The project will serve three schools, Al-Aidarous School, Aisha School, and Al-Shaab School, in addition to Al-Ghaydah marketplaces and related facilities within these areas.
As part of the project, SDRPY will establish new medium-voltage and low-voltage networks to high specifications, including lines, extensions, and transformers for the district’s commercial zone and Al-Sadah neighborhood.
The project consists of a medium-voltage network of 11kV medium lines and a network of low-voltage 415volt air lines, in addition to the distribution 11.4kV transformers.
Simultaneously, the project will increase the production capacity of the current Al-Ghaydah power plant by 75%, adding 10MW and five transformers of 3MW each to reduce frequent interruption
