Siemens has been awarded around 34 million Euros to set up three new substations in Serbia and add supplementary 400 kV switchgear to a fourth.
In a project worth around 34 million Euros, Siemens Power Transmission and Distribution (PTD) is setting up three new substations in Serbia and adding supplementary 400 kV switchgear to a fourth.
The order was placed by the Belgrade-based state power supply companies Elektroprivreda Srbije and Elektroistok.
Serbia is currently expanding and modernising its power supply network to be ready for future linkup to the European interconnected grid. Construction work on the four turnkey substations is scheduled to last about 27 months.
Along with 400 kV and 110 kV switchgear, the scope of supply for the three substations – Belgrade 20, Jagodina 4 and Sombor 3 – comprises power transformers, as well as equipment for control, protection and communication. Construction of the operations building and connection of the substations to the Serbian 400 and 110 kV networks are also included in the contract.
At the fourth substation, Sremska Mitrovica 2, supplementary 400 kV switchgear will be installed, in addition to new equipment for control, protection and communication.
