EDF Renewables has pledged its trust into Hitachi ABB Power Grids to build four substations to connect three new wind farms near Ustka, Parnowo and Gorzyc in Poland.
Hitachi ABB Power Grids will deliver three 110/20 kV power substations for three new wind power plants that it is building in Northern and Western Poland. The plants are near Ustka (28 MW), Parnowo (15 MW) and Gorzyca (24 MW).
In addition to the three substations, Hitachi ABB Power Grids will also deliver a 110kV substation in Parnowo, which will be used by the distribution system operator.
“What is important is that we have managed to optimize the original project in order to reduce the cost of its implementation, while maintaining high functionality. These are the next in a series of projects that we are implementing in Poland for the EDF Group – our systems and apparatus have been working well for several years in another wind farm built by EDF. The customer can be confident that they have appointed an experienced contractor that understands their needs.”Hubert Krukowski, marketing and sales manager and vice president of the management board of Hitachi ABB Power Grids Poland.
The 110/20 kV power substation are the ‘brain’ of wind farms and are used to off-take and transform generated energy into the grid level.
EDF Renewables have commissioned the three new investments for 2021.
