Another Kazakh region supplied with uninterruptible energy
Baku, Azerbaijan, July 26
By Nargiz Sadikhova - Trend:
Uninterruptible energy supply of Pavlodar region was ensured following completion of Pavlodar Electricity Transmission Reinforcement Project by KEGOC, Trend reports with reference to the company.
Furthermore, the implementation of the project enabled the energy supplying and transmitting organizations to guarantee the electric power supply to the free economic zones created in the region.
In addition to the existing power transmission lines, connecting this region with the Unified Power System (UPS) of Kazakhstan between Promyshlennaya substation and EEC substation (Eurasian Energy Corporation), the new 220 kV OHTL (Overhead Power Transmission Lines) was constructed.
Within the project, Pavlodarskaya Substation (SS) with the upgrade to 220 kV and 220 kV open-type switchgear at EEC substation were rehabilitated. A number of other power facilities were constructed that created a ring of transmission lines of EEC - Pavlodarskaya SS - Promyshlennaya SS - EEC at 220 kV.
Pavlodar Electricity Transmission Reinforcement Project significantly increased the reliability of power plant operations, and also electricity supply to consumers in the region. Pavlodarskaya thermal power stations 1, 2 and 3 now can increase their electricity generation, which is important for the growing needs of the developing industrial cluster in Pavlodar.
Previously, the Pavlodar energy center had a total electricity generation in the amount of 800 MW, consumed 600-650 MW, and transferred the excess capacity of 150-200 MW to the UPS of Kazakhstan. It was connected to the UPS of Kazakhstan via two 110 kV lines, which did not provide sufficient interconnection capacity and reliability of synchronous operation of Pavlodar energy center with the UPS of Kazakhstan during scheduled or emergency shutdown of lines.
