Overview

This opportunity entails setting up a manufacturing and assembly plant for the production of surge and lightning arrestors. A surge arrestor is a device to protect electrical equipment from over-voltage transients caused by external (lightning) or internal (switching) events. Lighting arrestors are primarily used in power transmission and telecom towers to protect the insulation and conductors from lighting damage. The typical lightning arrestor has a high-voltage terminal and a ground terminal.

The KSA Surge and Lightning Arrestors demand over the next four years is estimated at 34.6 million USD.

Market overview:

KSA has massive plans to increase transmission capacity, amounting to ~69,000 Ckt km of high voltage lines and ~250,000 MVA of high voltage substations (cumulative 2017 – 2030). Similarly, planned additional distribution capacity to amount to ~69,000 Ckt km for high voltage lines and ~219,000 MVA for high voltage substations (cumulative 2017 – 2030).

Beyond KSA, major regional capacity additions are planned to service the double-fold regional demand growth. Plans to increase regional transmission capacity beyond KSA amount to ~259,000 Ckt km of high voltage lines and ~775,000 MVA of high voltage substations (cumulative 2017 – 2030). Similarly, planned additional distribution capacity to amount to ~1.9 million Ckt km for high voltage lines and ~819,000 MVA for high voltage substations (cumulative 2017 – 2030).
