Enel invests five million Euro in two 110 kV underground lines in Bucharest

Enel Distributie Muntenia is building two new 110 kV underground lines that will ensure safer connections and higher capacity of the distribution networks between Fundeni station, under the management of Transelectrica, and the 110/20 kV stations of Enel in Obor and Nord, according to a press release issued to The Diplomat – Bucharest

2016-06-15 22:26:15 - From the Print Edition

Each of these two new lines have an equivalent capacity that is sufficient to provide power to 180,000 users.
"The purpose of the work is to increase safety and to ensure continuity of the power supply to consumers in the central area of the Capital," read the release. "The estimated value of the works is five million Euro. According to a predictive study made by Enel Distributie Muntenia, electricity consumption in the area served by the distribution company will increase on average by about 1.6 per cent annually. Thus, to increase safety in power supply, two new 110 kV cables, one of which will replace an underground line that is older than 45 years, will be connected by Enel to the Fundeni station via two 110 kV cells featuring modernized equipment." The two underground cables will have a total length of 15.3 km, while each have a cross-section of 1,600 mm2 and a transport capacity of 180 MVA (mega volt ampere). Thus, in case of severe failure in the centre of Bucharest, consumers will still have power by using the new underground power lines. These lines will also increase the possibility to transfer power in contingency situations to the 110 kV network between the Capital's East and North, and will bring great flexibility in the network, enabling a safe connection of new consumers in the area, the release also read.
