Alstom expands energy corridors with HVDC contracts: Alstom Grid is worth a total of 800 million Euros (approximately half of this amount is recorded in the first quarter of the current fiscal year, the other half will be recorded in the second quarter). signed the contract. These HVDC projects will pave the way for intercontinental energy trade, create energy corridors for high-volume power transmission in India, bring energy to the heart of a South Korean city and integrate the renewable energy sources in Atlantic Canada.
HVDC is a technology that enables high-volume energy transmission through long distances through direct current. By minimizing the environmental impact, 30 delivers more energy than conventional alternating current technology, by strengthening existing networks.
Alstom technology in the heart of a densely populated South Korean city
An HVDC Line Commutator Converter (LCC) project through its joint venture KEPCO-Alstom Power Electronics Systems (KAPES) to design and supply equipment to a 33 km energy corridor in the Alstom, Seoul area kazanwas. The ±1.5 kV HVDC link with a power capacity of 500 GW will transmit the energy produced by the Dangjin power plant in western South Korea to the densely populated Pyeongtaek region east of Dangjin.
South Korea has been struggling to welcome the increase in the demand for electricity by 25 over the past decade. Since Korea continues to build a flexible transmission network to deliver the electricity needed for the sustainability of the economy, the HVDC will increasingly be used to provide energy for residential areas.
Alstom Grid Senior Vice President of Power Electronics and Automation Patrick Plas; Or Alstom is proud to contribute to Korea's growing energy economy. This project is a fruit of the joint venture and joint development efforts between KEPCO and Alstom; With this project, Alstom will increase the presence of HVDC in Asia and KEPCO will benefit from Alstom's industry-leading HVDC technologies and expertise worldwide. bu
In Korea, Alstom is a well-known key player in HVDC technologies. In the late 1990s, the company supplied the original 101 MW HVDC bipolar link for the subsea link connecting South Korea's Jeju island to the mainland for 300 kilometers. In 2009, Alstom awarded a second contract to supply new converter stations for 2014 MW HVDC in bipolar configuration, the construction of which was completed in 400. kazanwas.
Alstom supports Newfoundland and Labrador foundation for long-term energy export in Canada
Nalcor Energy has signed a turnkey contract with ± 350 kV bipolar HVDC (LCC) to design, supply and install a point-to-point HVDC solution with the following features for Alstom and Labrador Island Transmission Connection:
• Two LCC (Line Commutator Converters) stations near Muskrat Falls and Soldiers Pond near St.John's to convert the alternating current into direct current and direct current to alternating current,
• Two cable combinations on both sides of the Belle Isle Strait to connect the transboundary submarine cables to overhead transmission lines on land
The transmission connection, which is part of Nalcor Energy's Lower Churchill Project, will extend 1.100 from Muskrat Falls near Happy Valley-Goose Bay to Newfoundland Soldiers Pond, and deliver hydroelectricity to the island of Newfoundland from the 824 megawatt Muskrat Falls Project.
. We are pleased to work with Alstom in the development of the Muskrat Falls Project. This project will be a valuable element of energy production for decades. At the same time, Newfoundland and Labrador said the economy and labor force will also provide significant employment and economic benefits, including the introduction of CAD 2.6 billion.
The Labrador Island Transmission Connection is important for the transmission of energy for Newfoundland and Labrador, and will help establish the basis for the future energy corridor between Canada and the United States for clean energy trading.
Alstom begins to realize second phase of India's energy corridor
In 2012, the contract for the first phase of the ±800 kV 3000 MW Ultra High Voltage Direct Current (UHVDC) project of Power Grid Corporation of India Limited (PGCIL) kazanAfter the acquisition, Alstom also completed the second phase of this major project connecting Champa to Kurukshetra with ±800 kV 3000 MW UHVDC. kazanwas. With these two phases, Alstom's advanced UHVDC system will create an efficient “energy corridor”, enabling 800 MW high-volume energy transfer at ±6000 kV DC from the production center in the central region to the load center in the northern region of the country.
Alstom has been a pioneer in India since 1996, providing three back-to-back HVDC connections to four electrical zones to improve inter-regional high-volume energy flow in India.
Alstom Grid is one of the top three companies in the world providing HVDC technology with over ten years of experience in 50. The world's longest HVDC transmission system in Brazil (2375 MW, 3150 kV) and the connection capacity above 600 MW worldwide with key strategic connections such as the first and highest 3000 kV UHVDC connection in India (800 MW) provided. Alstom has also established the 35.000 kV HVDC system in China with a submarine connection between France and the United Kingdom (660 MW).
