This opportunity entails setting up a manufacturing / assembly plant for MV switchgears.
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).
The KSA MV switchgear market is estimated at USD 293 million in 2017 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 6.4%, to reach a value of USD 1,002 million by 2030.
With forecasted market growth, multiple opportunities exist to localize the MV switchgear production value chain. The main focus of this opportunity is on manufacturing and assembly of MV switchgears:
- Manufacturing: steel sheet fabrication, copper processing, cast resin processing, surface treatment, pre-connecting of cables, cable harnesses
- Assembly: framework assembly, busbar installation, component device & drawer mounting, wiring, enclosure assembly
However, opportunities also exist in MV switchgear testing which includes,
- Conformity checks (framework, busbar, device and drawer enclosure), mechanical checks, electrical checks (operating test, dielectric withstand, electrical continuity of protection circuits, insulation resistance)
