144kV Substation Commissioning

144kV Substation Commissioning


The 2060S 144kV substation is part of ATCO Electric’s upgrade project supporting a new 15km 144kV line between Engstrom 2060S and the Kinosis 856S substation south east of Fort McMurray, Alberta. This will allow for reliable servicing of industrial parties in the south east Wood Buffalo region and help to meet forecasted future demands.

Magna's scope of work for this project consisted of apparatus testing for 144KV/25KV equipment such as:

  • capacitor banks
  • disconnect switches
  • CVT’s
  • HV current transformers
  • line reactors
  • ground grid systems
  • circuit switchers

Complete testing of protection and control schemes and full functional testing including primary injection of equipment.
