Abu Dhabi-based Ruya Partners (Ruya) has completed a $20 million investment into Energia, a leading temporary power solutions (TPS) provider in Saudi Arabia.

Headquartered in Jubail, Energia has a nationwide presence with offices across all major cities, a high-quality fleet, and deep engineering capabilities. The company has been a leading player in the Saudi TPS sector over the past decade and plays an integral role in providing turn-key power solutions to the Kingdom’s rapidly growing economy and its evolving power needs.

Some of Energia’s most recent projects include The Saudi Electric Company National Grid Support Project, Saudi Aramco HUGRS Gas Refinery Critical Power Project, Riyadh Metro Project, Dammam Airport Emergency Power, and significant events such as Formula 1 and Riyadh Season.

Ruya’s investment will further strengthen Energia and enable it to acquire new assets, refinance its near-term maturities, and focus on its growth initiatives, including sustainable and green energy solutions.
