New substation to support Titanium Valley enterprises

The Sverdlovsk region is currently constructing a 110/10 kilowatt substation called Titan in the special economic zone in Russia dubbed Titanium Valley.

Workers are expected to finish the station by the end of the year. Then substation will be the first power source for future enterprises in the special economic zone, Ural Business Consulting reports.

The $5.9 million station is being built by order of MRSK Urala and will be fitted with two 10 mega volt ampere (MVA) transformers as required by a technological hookup agreement. The station must also have the capacity to raise its transformers to 40 MVA in the future.

Approximately $140 million was allocated to the Titanium Valley zone for infrastructure purposes in 2013-2017, according to Ural Business Consulting.
