DOMAIN: Automation and Security in operation transformer station
CLIENT: Distribuție Energie Electrică România S.A.
PROJECT DESCRIPTION :
The proposed works are part of the provisions of the SDEE Muntenia Nord strategy, to reduce technological losses, non-supply times for consumers and improve safety in the operation of facilities.
The existing 110 kV wiring diagram, with 2 line-transformer block cells, no longer ensures the electricity supply conditions of the consumers. The energy equipment in the 110/20 kV Măgura transformer station is physically and morally worn out.
The 110/20 kV Măgura power substation was put into operation in 1976 and supplies, through the 20 kV and 0.4 kV distribution networks, the domestic, commercial and industrial consumers from the north-eastern area of Focșani municipality.
During this period, the replacement works BK (capacitor bank) were performed with the same operations:
These works were carried out in 4 stages accepted by the beneficiary without endangering the supply of consumers in the area.
The number of 20kV cells replaced was 28 pieces.
Work duration: September 2017 – April 2021
110kV Batch Execution (demolition of existing equipment, execution of foundations, installation of new equipment, wiring, connections and related parameters): June 2018 – June 2019
20kV batch execution (demolition of existing equipment, execution of foundations, installation of new equipment, wiring, connections and related parameters): August 2020 – May 2021
Work location: Focșani City, VranceaCounty
Obstacles during work:
The biggest impact in carrying out this project was even the COVID-19 pandemic, which impacted the delivery of all necessary materials on time (especially 20kV cells). Relatively long execution time due to the fact that the works were carried out in stages while the station was partially in operation.
Benefits for Customers and Community:
Being a power station of major importance in that area, the aim was to reduce technological losses, downtime for consumers and improve operational safety of facilities.
