The passenger terminals at King Khaled International Airport (KKIA) in Riyadh are handling more passengers than the original design capacity of 12MAP. This has resulted in a reduced level of service for the passengers travelling through KKIA. Currently the airport of KKIA has three passenger terminals (Terminals 1, 2 and 5), of which Terminal 3 & 4 are not used. In order to resolve the capacity problems and develop the airport into a modern commercial driven airport able to compete with airports in the region, the General Authority of Civil Aviation (GACA) has initiated a programme to develop the KKIA Airport.
In order to service the utility demands and provide the site infrastructure of the proposed KKIA Airport development, a new Electrical Load Centre (LC3) is required to provide emergency backup power generation for 100% of the load. The electrical generation will be carried out through 34 diesel generators (Gensets), 31 sets able to provide the load and 3 additional sets in spare for either generator failure or one or more generators being under maintenance, with a total out power of 87 MVA (2.8 MVA each).
