Hidroelectrica invests €2.5 million in modernising 10 electrical stations

Green Forum
Hidroelectrica completed the modernization of ten 110kV electrical stations in SH Hateg. The investment is worth €2.5 million.

The 110 kV power stations that were modernized were put into operation between 1986 and 1992, having the role of discharging the electricity produced by several hydroelectric plants. Over time, their equipment has become obsolete, generating significant maintenance costs and delays in the operation of the associated hydroelectric plants.

The modernization of the stations was carried out in stages, to avoid energy losses. The works were completed in December 2023, and the commissioning of the ten stations is scheduled for February 14, 2024, after 72 hours of testing.

Modernization brings significant benefits, including increased automation, safety and availability of power stations, efficiency, reduced operating costs, and digitization of processes. The project represents a significant to operational efficiency and sustainability of the country's energy infrastructure.
