  • Power interconnection project in Oman to help save 175mln litres of diesel annually
The Rabt interconnection project in Oman aims to connect the country's separate networks, causing the closure of 14 diesel-fired power facilities. This effort is expected to save 175 million liters of diesel and cut carbon emissions by more than 474,000 tons each year. Phase 1 connects the Main Interconnected System in the North to the PDO network and Tanweer in Al Wusta Governorate. Phase 2, which is now under tender, will expand south to the Dhofar System. The project, led by the Oman Electricity Transmission Company (OETC), intends to improve the national grid's efficiency, integration, and security while lowering carbon emissions. According to OETC CEO Saleh Nasser al Rumhi, the project, together with energy saving initiatives, would enable Oman to meet its Net Zero Emission Target by 2050.
