August 2019

CG Power & Industrial Solutions (previously Crompton Greaves), an Indian multinational specialised in power generation, has won a contract to build power units for a wind farm in Saudi Arabia.

The award was given to its subsidiary, CG Holdings Belgium NV Systems Division, which will be designing and building high-voltage substations for the 400-MW Dumat Al Jandal wind farm project.

Located some 900 km from north of Riyadh, in Al Jouf region, Dumat Al Jandal is being set up at a cost of $14 million and will be Saudi Arabia’s first large-scale onshore wind farm and the largest so far in the Middle East, says a company spokesman.

It is being developed by a consortium of France’s EDF Renewables and Abu Dhabi Future Energy Company (Masdar) that will supply power to the Saudi Power Procurement Company, a subsidiary of Saudi Electricity Company (SEC).

The French-UAE company was awarded the project by Saudi Arabia’s Renewable Energy Project Development Office (Repdo), part of the Saudi Arabian Ministry of Energy, Industry, and Mineral Resources, in January 2019.

CG Power & Industrial Solutions is part of the Avantha Group, one of India’s leading business conglomerates with 25,000 employees in 90 countries.
