The investment currently underway at the 220 kV electrical substation of Tuinucú, a small town located in the Cuban central province of Sancti Spiritus, aims at improving the country’s main line of power transmission and will allow to use the Static Var Compensator (SVC) for the first time.
Engineer Armando Hernandez Milian, head of the local Integrated Management of Projects under the Construction Company of the Electricity Industry (ECIE), told Escambray that the geographical location of this territory determined the installation of the automatic compensator which will improve the efficiency of the national power system.
“It’s a modern equipment that regulates the network’s efficiency parameters as long as needed, and makes it possible to increase the conduction of the transfer system up to 100 MV.
“The territory of Sancti Spiritus will benefit from this Project, but the essential function of the equipment is to favor the 220 kV line and to expand the capacity of power transmission all over the island” of the island”, Armando Hernandez said.
