The Consolidated Gulf Company and its partner BPL Global have been awarded a contract by Qatar General Electricity & Water Corporation for the supply, installation and commissioning of BPL Global's Serveron on-line transformer monitoring system.

The transformer monitors help avoid transformer failures, lower maintenance costs and defer capital expenditures by extending transformer life, claims the company. The project includes the supply of Serveron on-line transformer monitors which will be installed in substations in Qatar.

According to the company, the project is part of the new phase of Qatar General Electricity & Water Corporation’s (Kahramaa) ‘Qatar Power Transmission System Expansion’ plan to continue the main transmission networks and to secure the power supply to industrial and domestic sectors in Qatar.

Kahramaa will replace its manual oil sampling process that was manpower intensive and ineffective due to its limited accuracy and frequency.
Anil Mahajan, COO of the Consolidated Gulf Company (CGC), said: “This project shows CGC’s commitment towards bringing technologies to Qatar in association with its partners.”

CGC is an engineering and technology services organisation in the State of Qatar with interests in Telecom, Information Technology, Mobile Telephony, Construction, Oil and Gas, etc. domains.
