Localization Of Ring Main Units (RMU) Production

OVERVIEW

This opportunity entails setting up a manufacturing / assembly plant for VCB and SFU based RMUs.

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 RMU market is estimated at USD 111 million in 2017 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 6%, to reach a value of USD 247 million by 2030.

With forecasted market growth, multiple opportunities exist to localize the RMU production value chain. The main focus of this opportunity is on manufacturing and assembly of RMUs:

  • Manufacturing: PCB manufacturing, Microchip processing, outdoor metal sheet/compartment manufacture, cable connections with insulating process with gas, welding process for gas tank
  • Assembly: PCB and chip assembly, cable assembly, outdoor compartment assembly with painting, wiring, cable box and circuit breaker assembly

However, opportunities also exist in RMU testing which includes,

  • Micro-ohm test, SF6 gas leak test, partial discharge test on gas tank, circuit breaker analyzer test, high voltage tests, other tests
