New power capacity of 126 MVA supply electricity to some of the largest industrial enterprises of the Republic, including JSC "Caspian float glass plant," Metallurgical Plant and other industries.
Construction of the substation was part of the implementation of large-scale infrastructure project on the socio-economic development of the region.
The work on the commissioning of the SS Glass was conducted under a contract with the Ministry of Industry, Energy and Communications of the Republic of technological connection of industrial plants to the grid.
The new substation is fully automated. In particular, it is equipped with the latest technology of relay protection, metering and process control. At the substation uses the most modern equipment of substation control, outdoor switchgear 110 kV and 35 kV, complete switchgear 10 kV. Installed two power transformers of 63 MVA, gas-insulated circuit breakers, current and voltage transformers, surge arresters.
For the first time in the MES South substation installation of conductors used to cast resin that will significantly reduce energy. Compared with conventional wire and cable lines with XLPE insulation, the conductive cast resin is more durable, low-maintenance, seysmoustoychiv (9 points) and has a long service life — about 40 years. At the substation installed more than 400 m of the conductor. At work do not require the use of post insulators, which significantly reduced the time and effort to install it.
The substation instituted four lines — two 110 kV transmission line Artem — Glass-1 and Artem — Glass-2, as well as two 35 kV line: Glass — Steel Plant-1 Glass — Steel Plant-2.
