A complete substation automation system to protect three solar parks connected to the Venalta substation, which delivers the energy into a single 220kV line at the Huéneja substation.
- The contractor OHLA awarded ZIV the Integrated Protection and Control System for the Venalta project
- ZIV has equipped the new Venalta substation and a new line position for Huéneja (220kV)
- A complete SAS for three solar parks capable of generating 150MW
This is the first collaboration between ZIV and OHLA engineering. The final client is Diverxia Infrastructure, the promoter of a photovoltaic complex made up of three solar parks connected to the Venalta substation, which delivers the energy into a single 220kV line at the Huéneja substation. It will generate the energy equivalent to the annual consumption of around ninety-five thousand Spanish homes.
ZIV has equipped the Venalta substation with an Integrated Protection, Control and Communications System (SAS), and the new 220kV line position of the Huéneja substation. ZIV modular and cybersecure protection relays have already been integrated in the cabinets. The engineering and commissioning services have been provided from a ZIV team located at the company headquarters in Zamudio (Spain).
Diverxia has invested more than 100 million euros in the construction of this large photovoltaic complex, located in the province of Granada, which, during its construction phase, has created more than 180 new direct jobs, many of them for local labour.
