400kV Interconnection to Abu Dhabi Island

WSP was awarded a contract by Abu Dhabi Water and Electricity Authority (ADWEA) for the supply of consulting engineering services for the 400 kV Interconnection to Abu Dhabi Island. The contract was awarded to the Abu Dhabi Office of PBP, from where the project will be engineered and managed, with significant support from PBP technical specialists in the UK.

Bullet Client: Abu Dhabi Water and Electricity Authority

The project objective is to improve the availability of electrical power supplies on Abu Dhabi Island by increasing the number of 400 kV interconnections from the Abu Dhabi 400 kV Grid to the island and reinforcing the transmission system on the island. The design criteria adopted requires that full power supply capacity be maintained to the island even when the two largest in-feeds are out of service.

The scope of the project includes substations, overhead lines and underground circuits.
