Linxon is supplying a 130 kV/10 kV Gas Insulated (GIS) turnkey substation to Barkarby in Stockholm. The customer is the Swedish utility Vattenfall Eldistribution AB in Sweden. Stockholm is expanding heavily in the northwest part and the station is needed to secure the electrical infrastructure in this growing area.
The Linxon turnkey supply includes project management, engineering, equipment supply, civil design, civil works, installation and commissioning. The 130 kV GIS is the main equipment and will be sourced from Hitachi ABB Power Grids. The civil works consist of two substation buildings with high requirements on the external finishing to fit to the surroundings in the new modern district of Barkarby.
Site works is planned to start in the autumn 2020 and the project is estimated to be completed in the beginning of 2022.
