VEO supplies third wind farm substation to Ellevio

PRESS RELEASE 2.11.2017

VEO has been trusted with the turnkey delivery of a 145/36kV substation in the municipality of Ljusdal, Sweden. The order value of the project is close to 1,5 MEUR. This is the third substation VEO delivers to distribution network operator Ellevio and VEO’s 15th substation in Sweden. The new substation connects a newly-built wind farm with 18 wind turbines to the grid. The installed capacity of the wind farm is 65 MW and its estimated annual production 244 GWh.

“We value competent partners, who take working environment and safety matters seriously. In earlier projects, VEO has successfully implemented our standards and procedures, making project start-up smooth and according to plan. We are confident in using VEO as our supplier”, says Rickard Sundbaum, Project Manager at Ellevio. The substation in Ljusdal will be completed in May-June 2018.

We are confident in using VEO as our supplier.

The new substation in Ljusdal is tailored according to Ellevio’s needs with VEO’s optimised modular substation solution for medium voltage distribution switchgear and protection and control equipment. With the modular solution, assembling and testing of the system is done in the factory with only final installations on site, making the delivery seamless. The possibility of parallel work in the factory and construction on site, as well as the controlled conditions in the factory, enables a shorter execution time and a safer delivery of higher quality.
