Owing to the new 110 kV open distribution equipment installed during reconstruction the SCADA system will replace the two 125 MVA transformers to boost the transmission grid’s capacity, the power consumption downtown Yerevan and in the southern districts as a result of reduced power consumption.
In place since 1988, the reconstruction of Victory Substation started in July, 2016. A total of 14 million US dollars was invested to implement the proposed activities. There are currently 15 people employed at the Substation which boasts state-of-the-art equipment.
The project was implemented with the support of the World Bank, project chief contractor Cascade Energy Company, and Decon / Consulectra JV consulting company.
