Demand for power outstrips supply
The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA) is a country on the rise. The government is spending billions of dollars on infrastructure projects and the population is growing fast. Yet this rapid growth is putting pressure on the power supply, and blackouts and power rationing are common. To fix the problem, the public utility, Saudi Electricity Company (SEC), asked us to manage a series of distributed generation systems while the permanent infrastructure expands.

Temporary, scalable power
We’ve helped KSA meet its power needs since 1997. We now manage 14 sites across the country, with our power load scaling up or down depending on the capacity required at any point in time. So we drew on our network of service centres and staff to deliver a lean and efficient model that could reach the most remote parts of the country, fast.

Renting gives the flexibility of extra power while building permanent supply.
Projects and people get the power they need
In us, KSA has a trusted partner for delivering the power required to get big jobs done. Infrastructure projects can proceed without risk of shortages or rationing. Residents get an assured power supply, too. With the flexibility to increase or decrease capacity depending on demand, KSA is only paying for what they need and can grow with confidence.
“As our rental contract with SEC has grown, we have more than proven ourselves capable of flexing our delivery to meet the changing demands of the utility grid.”
