Two new onshore wind farms in Andalusia will have ZIV protection, control and communication systems (renewables SAS)
The wind farms will have twelve wind turbines, with a capacity of 32 megawatts (MW): nine turbines in La Escalereta II project in Malaga, and another three in La Estancia park, located in Cádiz.
Multifunction Protection in Medium Voltage Cells
Both parks will be maintained and operated by Siemens Gamesa for 20 years. They will have a complete ZIV SAS, this is integrated ZIV protection and control system, including IEC 61850 ed2 certified multi-function protections integrated in medium voltage cells.
In addition to all the equipment, ZIV will provide its engineering services for the development of electrical engineering, logic engineering, selectivity studies and associated commissioning services, including remote controls and communications with different SCADAS.

About ZIV protection relays
- Distance Protection (“V” Platform)
- Transformer differential protection relays
- Multifunction protection relays
- Automatic Voltage Regulator (“V” Platform)
- Busbar protection relays
The parks are located in Malaga and Cádiz, are part of a set of 147 parks built in the Andalusia region, which operating at full capacity would generate electricity for one year, consuming 1,590,000 homes (3,324.34 MW installed).
