CGC and BPL Global win Kahramaa project in Qatar
Partnership Awarded Contract for BPLG's Serveron® On-line Transformer Monitoring System for Dissolved Gas & Moisture Analysis
DOHA: Consolidated Gulf Company (CGC) , the leading IT, telecom and engineering solution provider in Qatar and its partner BPL Global®, Ltd. (BPLG), a smart grid technology company dedicated to leading the transformation of energy and information delivery, have been awarded a major contract by Qatar General Electricity & Water Corporation (KAHRAMAA) for the supply, installation and commissioning of BPLG's Serveron® On-line Transformer Monitoring System. The transformer monitors help avoid transformer failures, lower maintenance costs and defer capital expenditures by extending transformer life. The project includes the supply of Serveron Model TM 8 On-Line Transformer Monitors which will be installed in substations in Qatar.
This project is part of the new phase of Kahramaa 's " Qatar Power Transmission System Expansion" plan to continue the reinforcement of the main transmission networks and to secure the power supply to industrial and domestic sectors in Qatar. Kahramaa will replace its manual oil sampling process that was manpower intensive yet ineffective due to its limited accuracy and infrequent in nature. The Serveron technology's continuous sampling and superior accuracy significantly reduce the likelihood of unplanned failures and increase system reliability.
Engineer Ali Jassim Al-Najjar, Manager, Electricity Transmission Department, Kahramaa , said: "We have started implementing the on-line monitoring services and BPL Global - Serveron has been chosen as the vendor for the 1st phase of the roll out. CGC-BPL expertise will help us assure safe and cost-effective operation of our power transformer fleet, protecting our significant investment in these assets."
" Kahramaa has selected our on-line transformer monitors to create a significant advancement in power transformer condition assessment and management," said Pascal Julienne, President Executive Director, BPL Global EMEA. "We are delighted to partner with CGC , noted for their distinguished history of introducing innovative technology in Qatar, to provide our Serveron On-Line Transforming Monitoring solution to Kahramaa ."
