What has differentiated ALTAAQA’s power systems is its availability and reliability. The Company has built its fleet capacity of 500MW in less than 5 years, with its series of diesel generation equipment starting from 210 KW – 2000KW, including a wide range of accessories such as step up transformers, medium voltage switchgear, load-banks, fuel tanks, and hundreds of kilometers of cables. The massive growth in equipment and manpower has necessitated the creation of 6 major branches in Saudi with over 200 skilled and competent employees.
ALTAAQA’s ability to mobilize, install, test and commission power plant capacities of 20-30MW in days has been commended by SEC generation and distribution management and was rewarded with direct project awards. ALTAAQA was granted its energy sales license from regulatory Authority in 2007 and continues to seek strategic partnerships in IWPP, renewable and cogeneration technologies.

Their engineered solutions, utility grade protection system, and competent installation and operating staff are ingredients to their success in grid enforcement power generation capacity during periods of high demand, temporary power during planned maintenance or unplanned outages, and peak shaving during high tariff hours to meet production needs.
Electricity is vitally important and touches our daily lives. “For the residential segment, electricity keeps our water running, air conditioners cooling, and other household appliances functioning. At large, it energizes infrastructures, business, and computers that track activities, bank deposits, and medical records. Our livelihood depends on it. Without electricity in a bank, a mall or a hospital, no systems will function, rendering the facilities useless” Emad Mukhalalaty, Managing Director of ALTAAQA commented.
