Client: COBRA
Industry & Construction
URUGUAY

CSI Ingenieros is hired for the development of the basic and detailed engineering of the extension of Punta del Tigre Station for connection of Kiyú Wind Farm. The extension comprehends one 150 kV section and the building expansion. The design of the same one is made following UTE requirements.

To this station connects the 50 MW high voltage line coming from Kiyú Wind Farm, located at 26 km from the station.

The project comprehends the integral design of the protections, control, alternate and direct current auxiliary services systems, station network and communications. The design also involves the protection against atmospheric discharges, the civil and electrical design of the field and the control system of the building.
