  • Project will help improve grid stability and availability
  • Shunt reactors improve power quality and reduce transmission costs
  • Siemens is responsible for generating over 50% of Oman's electricity
Dubai, UAE, October 8, 2017:  Larsen and Toubro in Oman, one of the leading global technology, engineering, construction and manufacturing companies, has selected Siemens to supply four Shunt Reactors to the Oman Electricity Transmission Company. The reactors will be installed at 400kV substations in Izki and Ibri to improve grid stability across the transmission lines between these cities. 
Oman faces rising demand for electricity, driven by population growth and increased industrial activity led by the oil, gas and petrochemicals sector. The Oman Electricity Transmission Company (SAOC) has an ambitious plan to strengthen the main electricity transmission lines across the Sultanate to facilitate greater linkage between the country's energy networks. 
Shunt reactors are vital components of an efficient-long distance high-voltage power transmission system. They are used as protection from voltage surges on long transmission lines between power plants and consumption areas. Siemens shunt reactors, featuring high efficiency and low life-cycle costs, can increase the energy efficiency of power transmission by improving power quality and reducing transmission costs.  
As part of the agreement, the four 400kV, 100MVAr Oil Filled Shunt Reactors that will be delivered to site, will include the manufacturing, design, engineering, testing and training services. Manufactured at Siemens transformer factory in Weiz, Austria, the reactors are scheduled for delivery in 2018.
Wolfgang Braun, Senior Executive Vice President of Siemens Energy Management in the Middle East, added: “We are delighted to provide our latest grid technologies to help meet Oman's growing energy needs by strengthening the Sultanate's transmission infrastructure and improving power availability. Siemens' advanced shunt reactors technology will help even out voltage and load variations to deliver reliable, uninterrupted and stable supply of electricity to homes and offices and other facilities in Oman.”
Siemens has been operating in Oman since 1972. Today, the company's technology is responsible for generating over 50 percent of Oman's electricity capacity. The company has also supplied a significant proportion of the country's power transmission and distribution equipment to improve grid resiliency and responsiveness.
