Infrastructure & Network

Advanced Power Transmission Network for Reliable Services

Our network plays a key role in power transmission by carrying electrical power from generating plants to the substations where customers get their electricity. The industrial sector is directly connected to the main switchyards to ensure uninterrupted electrical supply.

The efficiency and reliability of our electrical transmission are due to our 259km network of underground cables and 52 km overhead transmission lines with voltage levels of 380 kV and 115 kV. 

Marafiq's transmission network is interconnected with the Saudi National Grid at Saline Water Conversion Corporation (SWCC) Yanbu through 380kV intertie lines to increase the reliability of the power system.

System Management

Operated by the Load Dispatch Center

Marafiq's power network is monitored and controlled through the Load Dispatch Center (LDC). 

The center is responsible for matching the power demand with system integrity, reliability, and security of generation and transmission facilities. The center also manages electricity generation, transmission, and distribution at every step to achieve maximum efficiency according to the least-cost security-constrained economic dispatch.

Through load forecast, generation maintenance, power transmission maintenance, and resolving dispatch instructions instantly, the LDC continuously balances system load with generation in real-time.
