ABB, a brand new turnkey 110/33 kV substation in Tulcea county

As part of Romania’s push to take advantage of its wind energy potential, ABB will install a brand new turnkey 110/33 kilovolt (kV) substation in Tulcea county, a part of the Dobrogea region known for its high wind power potential, which will allow a new 84 MW wind farm to be connected to the grid, a press release informs. This project is a turnkey endeavor, which includes the design, engineering, equipment supply, erection and commissioning of the substation. The Dorobantu -Topolog substation will have a rated capacity of 126 megavolts-ampere (MVA) and will be connected by a 15 km long 110 kV underground cable to the Rahman substation, a substation previously built by ABB. Today, Romania has a total installed wind power capacity of around 2,000 MW, which is contributing towards about 7 percent of the country’s electricity and can on certain days exceed the power generated by its only nuclear power plant or its entire collection of active hydropower plants.
