ABB commissions two digital substations in Italy

ABB has commissioned two digital substations located in Tolve and Vaglio, in the Basilicata region in southern Italy.

The key equipment integrated in the substations are power transformers with sensors, digitally enabled switchgear, and the manufacturer’s latest automation and control systems, as well intelligent protection equipment, and advanced communication systems, the company press release said.

The substations will integrate and transmit electricity generated by local wind farms to homes and businesses in the region and will contribute to Italy’s 2030 goal to meet 28 % of its energy needs through renewables.
