The selection committee of the branch of JSC "FGC UES" — MES North-West, signed the acceptance certificate completed construction on the project "Complex reconstruction and technical re-equipment of 220 kV Ilyich Plant in St. Petersburg (Stage 1)." In the implementation of the project was attended by experts of the Group of companies «Energostroyinvest-holding" — LLC "Energy Engineering Center", LLC "New Engineering Company", OAO "Sevzapelectrosetstroy", LLC "Energy Project Center."
As part of the reconstruction and technical re-equipment of 220 kV Ilyich Plant to the builders was a complex task to equip the modern substation electrical equipment, systems, emergency control, fire safety, communication and control, as well as the transfer of PS on the operating voltage of 330 kV.
At the first stage of the reconstruction of Ilyich Plant building was constructed 330 kV gas-insulated switchgear, and other industrial facilities. Specialists Group made the installation of electrical equipment, which were the basis of modern complete switchgear gas-insulated switchgear (GIS), 330 and 220 kV. At the substation was installed three new auto-transformer with a total installed capacity of 650 MVA. In addition, the scope of work included construction of systems engineering services to ensure reliable operation and management of the facility. Along with the reconstruction of the substation was reconstructed and a cable line Substation Plant I. — SS Volkhov-North is also moving on the voltage of 330 kV.
Updated PS Ilyich plant will be among the objects of the St. Petersburg Energy Ring — 330 kV. At the end of the reconstruction carried out by specialists of "Energostroyinvest-Holding", St. Petersburg grid gets another modern substation, which is designed to solve the problem of energy shortage on the status of the second populous metropolis and Russia.
