Aimed at enabling Bahrain to comfortably accommodate its growing population and support its economic progress, the project involves an upgrade of the main backbone transmission network to 400kV, with three main transmission substations being built in Hidd, Umm Al Hassam and Riffa.

Tony Conroy, Ellis’ sales director, said:
“The scale of our export operation really does differentiate us from the majority of our competitors and this project shows exactly why – a UK designed and manufactured product, sold to a Korean contractor and installed in Bahrain.”
“At present we have distributors in 39 countries and actively export to more than 40, meaning that we can confidently state that whenever a major project comes to being specified our name will always be in the frame.”
Ellis’ 2A aluminium cable clamps are manufactured from LM6 aluminium and are available in sizes ranging from 38mm to 168mm.
Primarily used in transmission and distribution projects in unpolluted environments, they can also be supplied with an epoxy coating for use in harsher environments, and Neoprene liners for additional cable protection.
Among the key benefits of Bahrain’s 400kV upgrade is that it will raise the capability and reliability of the kingdom’s power network, and importantly reduce the issues of the high short-circuit levels in various parts of the network to a safe level.
The Riffa substation where Ellis’ cleats are currently being installed is due to be in operations in late 2020 or early 2021.
