Muscat: The Rural Areas Electricity Company 'Tanweer' - Member of Nama Group- announced the commencement of work on a project to strengthen the electrical power grid and raise its efficiency in Wilayat Mahout at Al Wusta Governorate, at a total cost of 770,000 Omani Rials.

The project, located in the Khlouf area, will introduce vital improvements to the power grid, which will be completed before the end of the year. It includes constructing a 17 km-long overhead and ground 11 kilovolts (KV) power lines between Khlouf power station and the 0.433 KV substation.

The project is part of Tanweer's relentless efforts to raise the grid's efficiency, develop its assets, and safely operate them. The company's new project aims to cover the increasing demand for energy due to the economic and social growth in the Wilayat of Mahout.

The company is working on several projects to strengthen the electricity system in its concession areas and activities covering 75% of the Sultanate. Tanweer is the only company in the electricity sector in the Sultanate whose license includes generation, transmission, distribution and supply of electricity and water desalination in the areas in which the company operates.

During the last five-year plan, Tanweer invested more than 300 million Omani Rails in expanding, developing and improving power stations, substations and connected grid to keep pace with the population and urban growth in its concession areas extending from the north to the south of the Sultanate.
