Taihan Electric Wire Co., a South Korean cable manufacturer, said Monday that it
won a US$30 million contract to supply high-pressure power for San Diego,
The three-year contract with San Diego Gas and Electric
Co. (SDG&E) calls for the supply of 230 kilovolt cables to be used in the
city, the local manufacturer said.
It said that the SDG&E contract
is a "turn key" arrangement that involves the supply of all the necessary cables
as well as assembly and construction.
Taihan said that the U.S.
contractor may opt to increase the overall project which could translate into
more work down the road.
The latest utility upgrade project is part of an ongoing effort to expand the electricity power infrastructure in the U.S. state that has witnessed a steady population growth in recent years.
Taihan said that it won a $3 million deal to set up a 230 kilovolt high-pressure power system in Los Angeles late last year.
