First Pfu-7 installed in Latin AmericaOrmazabal has delivered the first walk-in prefabricated concrete transformer substation PFU-7 , with a monoblock structure more than 8 metres in length, to the Empresa Provincial de la Energía de Santa Fe (EPE) in the town of San Lorenzo, located 400 km to the north west of Buenos Aires, Argentina. This transformer substation will serve as a power supply for the Evonik biodiesel industrial plant.
The advantage of our prefabricated monoblock enclosures is that the switchgear can be installed and tested from factory in an industrial process endorsed by the strictest management system certifications. In this case, the supply configuration is made up of three fully-insulated cubicle assemblies of the CGM.3 system, installed in the same enclosure: a supply assembly that incorporates electronic protection units with the specifically-designed, integrated control ekorRPGci and two assemblies to power the metering systems. In all cases, they were provided with our latest generation vacuum circuit-breaker cubicles CGM.3-V, as well as the new metering cubicles CGM.3-M, designed in accordance with the international standard IEC 62271-200, which incorporate a connection to the main busbar via rigid bars thanks to the new connecting set between fully-insulated cubicles and air-insulated cubicles patented by Ormazabal.
Ormazabal's experience in this field is proven by the more than 21500 PFU prefabricated enclosures manufactured since 1985.
