GE is providing complete on-shore and off-shore substations to connect Neart na Gaoithe (NnG) Wind Farm

by Jan 17, 2020

Having energized three substations (Bolney, Ninfield, and Richborough) of National Grid UK in 2020, GE has won another order for supplying a STATCOM for Neart na Gaoithe (NnG) Wind Farm to meet local grid code requirements. The scope of supply is not limited to a STATCOM, but GE will be providing entire equipment for on-shore and off-shore substations which include four power transformers, four reactors, power quality components, and gas-insulated switchgear—at 66kV, 220kV and 400kV—as well as protection and control, SCADA, and telecommunications systems. This wind farm owned by EDF Renewables is expected to start operation in 2023. Link to the news:
