In response to severe power shortages faced by a client in Hail South Area when no other Power Rental provider registered with SEC was willing to provide power due to severe limitation of time in commissioning the same. We at Energia undertook the challenging project to set up a 33 MW, 34.5KV, power rental plant and commissioned the same in 35 days time at 3 different locations. This involved deploying 58 generators of 1250 kVA each along with a range of Medium Voltage Transformers. Despite the complexity and time constraints, Energia successfully completed the installation, adhering to stringent safety standards.
