Elmico LLC, as part of realization of the project SS 150/10/6 kV “Naddniprianska “, has supplied and installed 150 kV cable fittings of TE Raychem production. Connection to existing networks is made by two cable 150 kV lines:
- CL 150 kV «SS Uzlovaya — SS Naddniprianska»;
- CL 150 kV «SS Naddniprianska — SS G-5».
As part of the construction of the Naddnipryanska substation, more than 30 hectares of land in the Dnipro city center were freed up by replacing old air towers and overhead power lines with underground (cable) lines.
Re-equipment of existing overhead lines into cable allowed:
– to increase the reliability of power supply to household and industrial consumers in the central part of the city, as well as the reliability of electricity transit;
– to free for the city dozens of hectares of the land, the use of which had previously restrictions because of the security zone high-voltage lines;
– to reduce costs on exploitation of existing outdated overhead power lines;
– minimize power losses by implementing progressive technological solutions;
– reduce electromagnetic impact on the environment and residents, whose homes are in close proximity to the active overhead power lines.
