Bringing the Rochester (USA) power grid into the 21st century
- The replacement of the existing obsolete switchgear with the technology of Ormazabal, has turned one of its electrical centres into the most avant-garde installation, flagship of all medium voltage centres.
Avangrid Networks has relied on the technology of Ormazabal for the renovation and modernization of a critical electrical centre (number 38), in the heart of Rochester (New York, USA), where 3 voltage levels converged, and whose installation dated from 1925.
Among the work carried out in this huge project, new power transformers were installed, underground cable lines were replaced and new technologies were applied to guarantee reliability and improve capacities, making this centre a leading installation.
