No room for error in VEO’s renovation projects
As VEO’s relay-renovation turnkey deliveries include all necessary stages – from project planning, equipment supply, installation, commissioning and documentation to end-user training – the result is the sum of many pieces falling into place. All the relay renovations that VEO has delivered to Loiste have been made while the substations have been in operation. This means that there was no room for error.
“The Palokangas substation, for instance, serves electricity to the entire city centre of Kajaani, the town hospital included”, says Sami Koskela, Sales Manager at VEO, who continues:
“Moreover, VEO has strong know-how in all the fields concerned. The solid expertise of our engineers – who are responsible for the design and commissioning of the projects – has guaranteed that there has been no need for any unexpected shortages in power distribution.”
Renovation prolongs a substation’s lifecycle
The old protective relays were upgraded in all the mentioned relay renovations. Typically, the need for replacement occurs once or twice during a substation’s lifecycle. The most significant advantage of new generation protective relays is enhanced protection. Furthermore, modern replays can save data on malfunctions and disturbances. In this way, there will be more data about the origin, location and progression of a fault, which can be used in the maintenance service of electricity networks.
