Ukraine to reconstruct 18 transformers

Ukraine: National power company Ukrenergo plans to reconstruct 18 autotransformers at 12 substations in 2019.

The company’s press service reported that the transformer program approved in 2016 foresees the replacement and installation of 52 transformer equipment units, which reached the end of their lifespan (25-30 years) and have been operating for over 40 years.

This year, the company has already replaced two autotransformers at the 330 kV Rivne and Poltava substations and installed new AT-4 transformer at the Kremenchuk 330 kV substation.

As reported, the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) is able to provide Ukrenergo $167 M (EUR 149 M) for transmission networks upgrade.
