Understanding that transformers are the backbone of its transmission grid, National Grid Saudi Arabia has chosen to leverage Doble's expertise in the condition assessment of these strategic assets. Doble's global experience, specifically in relation to the understanding and comprehensive evaluation of transformers, will serve as a critical component and the foundation of this program.

Doble and National Grid Saudi Arabia will work together to perform an Asset Health Review of nearly 1000 transmission transformers. The project will use both time-based and predictive maintenance philosophies to enhance grid reliability by detecting and managing problems early on.

This partnership also includes the review of testing and maintenance practices, looking for the root cause of historic failures and a comprehensive study of National Grid Saudi Arabia's in-house electrical insulating oil laboratories. 

"National Grid Saudi Arabia is a leader in the advancement of electric power grids in the Middle East," said David Zabetakis, president of Doble. "They are focused on staying ahead of the fast-growing demand for reliable electric power infrastructure, and they want the best, most cutting-edge and cohesive assessment of their critical assets. We're here to help the National Grid Saudi Arabia team make certain that electricity is delivered safely, and reliably." 

Doble will bring an integrated and experienced team to work hand in hand with National Grid Saudi Arabia's chemists and field testing electrical engineers for this specialized consulting contract. This program will support state-of-the-art electrical testing, laboratory testing and diagnostics.
