Alstom Signed Two Power Transmission Contracts In Colombia

Alstom has been awarded two contracts, worth around €17 million, for the supply of seven power transformers to Sogamoso substation, located in the department of Santander (North Colombia), and for the construction of two 220 kV gas-insulated substations (GIS) in Armenia, located between Bogotá, Medellín and Cali; and in Alférez, in the region of Cali, department of Valle del Cauca. These projects will improve power quality and capacity as part of the expansion of Colombia’s national grid.

The power transformers were awarded by Interconexión Eléctrica S.A. (ISA) for Sogamoso substation. Under the terms of the contract, Alstom will supply seven 150 MVA power transformers to connect the power plant to the national grid. The project will be commissioned by the end of 2013.

The GIS substation contract was signed with Empresa de Energía de Bogotá (EEB). Alstom Grid will design, supply, erect and commission 220 kV gas-insulated switchgear, including civil works. The project will be commissioned mid 2013.

“Alstom is proud to play a major role in the development of Colombia’s national grid expansion. These orders further strengthen our market share and commercial presence in the country”, declared Juan Jorge Celis, Country President of Alstom Colombia.

Alstom’s 220 kV gas-insulated switchgear is specifically designed to avoid corrosion, offering a long service life expectancy. Its modular design saves space and also allows each of the compartments to be independently monitored. These features mean that it can be used for both indoor and outdoor applications and allows for easy availability during repair and extension.
