KUWAIT CITY, Sept 10: The Undersecretary of the Ministry of Electricity and Water Eng. Khalifa Al-Fureij revealed that Kuwait provided the Sultanate of Oman with 100 Megawatts of electricity for one full hour through the Gulf interconnection network, reports Al-Qabas daily. In a press statement, he explained that the Kuwaiti gave this support after the electricity network in Oman was exposed to a defect that led to a loss of 3,800 megawatts.

This had resulted in power outages in a number of parts of the country. Al-Fureij went on to explain that the Gulf interconnection network secures the member countries in overcoming any defect witnessed in the local networks in the least possible time. The GCC Interconnection Authority was established in 2001 as a joint stock company to connect the infrastructure of member states at the level of electricity and water. Kuwait has benefited from the authority’s cooperation protocol several times, as it was supplied with electricity to maintain the stability of the network in times of crisis.

The Kuwaiti network similarly contributed to providing a number of member states with the necessary energy. According to data issued by the authority, it contributed to achieving savings for member states estimated at about $3 billion over the past ten years, and prevented nearly 2,000 power outages in the GCC member states.
