The initiatives are developed into identified plans of action with required budget, financing schemes, and timeframe. The elimination/delay of any initiative and action will lead to losing the policy objective of rescuing the power sector from the current drastic situation to a new sustainable, reliable, and efficient delivery of electricity. A transitional rescue period of 3 - 4 years is required to achieve the goals of this policy.
NEEDS was involved in the Reengineering of Tabouk Infrastructure study – a Centralized Power Supply System for TADCO in Saudi Arabia (2003-2004). TADCO, Tabouk Agricultural and Development Company in KSA, was seeking a cost effective power project in generation and distribution. The objective is to alleviate overhead of electricity in their well-developed agriculture company. The study aimed at building a modern central, diesel power electrification system to replace the several existent and small de-centralized power supply systems. The proposed system advised a capacity of 43.2 MW that supplies power at 20KV into the local area network with the set of medium and low voltage equipment and auxiliaries.
