TEP6 Project - Long Distance Project

TEP6 Project

During 1996, TEP-6 LD Project was the key project which led to the foundation of ITEA International Ltd. in the first place. Under the banner of a joint venture, ITEA brought a lot of global expertise to the kingdom at that time. This project became very successful, as more than 2600 km of Long Distance Fiber Network was installed and commissioned, including in particular:

The Abha to Darb line section

The most difficult line section on TEP-6 project the cable is required to be placed alongside an existing water pipeline in the mountain area and is distant from any highway. In a length of 50 km the cable route overcame gradients of more than 2000 meters in height.

The Riyadh to Afif line section

As far as the time line was concerned, one of the toughest projects was the line section from Riyadh to Afif. 30% of project value had been held “at risk” by our client. ITEA was subject to be paid, only if the project was completed within a time period of 4 months. The project was a success. With the extra efforts of the company and its' highly skilled staff, about 586 km of cable line was completed in a record time period of less than 4 months by ITEA.
