The Transmission Substation Project in TROJENA is Nesma’s Greatest Accomplishment Yet
The $213 Million transmission substation construction project that Nesma is still undertaking in TROJENA will be exceptional. The company faces various challenges one of them in their transmission substation project one being altitude. The project is located in the mountainous regions of NEOM ranging between 1500 and 2600 meters. Nesma is confident that it will complete the transmission substation project within the stipulated 20 months it has been offered. TOJENA is anticipated to be a world-class destination. This is deemed so as it will be the only resort in the Gulf region offering outdoor skiing venue. The resort will also host year-round sporting activities, and even entertainment. This makes Nesma part of the Kingdom’s push to create distinctive tourist destinations. The company hopes to meet the expectations of the Kingdom in shortest time possible.
