A new autotransformer AT-4 with the capacity of 125 MWA has been commissioned at 750 kV SS “Vinnytska” of Pivdenno-Zakhidna PS.
Thanks to the professional and coherent work of specialists of Pivdenno-Zakhidna PS and Scientific and Production Enterprise “Enerhorishennia,” a subcontractor company engaged in the installation, the autotransformer was successfully put into operation.
This is an important event both for the power system as a whole and directly for Vinnytsia since the installation of an autotransformer 330/110 kV, as well as additional linear cells 110 kV, is a prerequisite for ensuring additional power supply to 110 kV distribution grid of Vinnytsia power center. As a result, the reliability of power supply to consumers in Vinnytsia and the region will significantly increase.
“Installation of a new autotransformer AT-4 will ensure technical capabilities of reliable and high-quality electricity supply to existing and prospective consumers in the region, reservation of their supply taking into account the formation of a new power supply source, as well as allow increasing the level of investment attractiveness and socioeconomic development of the region,” said Rostyslav Mykhailiuk, Technical Director of Pivdenno-Zakhidna PS.
