Proger enhances its relationship with EDP Renewables, winning a two-year framework agreement for the supply of electrical substation design services for renewable plants that EDPR plans to build in Italy. Proger will have to provide the Executive Project and prepare all the documentation required to launch the tenders for its construction.
The agreement, which follows the one for the provision of technical assistance services and supervision of works related to the development of wind farms and photovoltaic systems, confirms the company’s experience in the electrical substations sector, an area in which it also works for other important Italian players such as Terna and Enel.
The first project concerning the substation connected to the Fulgatore wind farm in the province of Trapani is currently underway. Proger will be responsible for the development of the executive project (civil and electromechanical) of the EDPR electrical substation for the connection to the National Transmission Grid (NTG) of the electricity produced by wind power, coming from 12 wind turbines with a unitary power of 3.65 MW, for a total power of 43.8 MW, installed in the Wind Farm. The substation will enable the transformation of the energy produced by the wind farm from 20 kV voltage to 150 kV voltage for connection to the National Transmission Grid (NTG) with 150 kV voltage. The user station will consist of a 150 kV operating voltage section, with relative step-up transformer, and a 20 kV operating voltage section for the connection to the wind farm.
