Linxon will upgrade a 400 kV substation for Svenska kraftnät located in Storuman in northern Sweden.
The upgrade is part of a refurbishment program of the 400 kV grid, as the existing substation is approaching the end of its lifespan. A new state-of-the art substation with modern technology will help to build higher transmission capacity into the network.
The Linxon project scope includes project management, engineering, equipment supplies, civil design, civil works, mechanical & electrical installation and commissioning. This upgrade also includes the relocation of two existing transformers as well as relocation of two reactors and demolition of the existing 400 kV AIS switchyard.
As it is a turnkey project, Linxon will select and manage some local competent subcontractors to complete the civil construction works, installation and commissioning of the substation. The project is planned to be completed by end of 2023.
