Works on a new substation underway
11. ágúst 2022
RST Net will install a digital control and protection system along with DC control supply system in a new substation for Landsnet.
Landsnet and RST Net have agreed that RST Net will be installing equipment for Landsnet's new substation in Hrútatunga. The new substation will be indoors at the same location as the old substation is located.
The old outdoor substation, which is over 40 years old, turned out to be a weak link in Iceland's transmission system when a bad storm hit Iceland in December 2019, resulting in severe power outages. Therefore, Landsnet decided that the new substation will be indoors and gas insulated (SF6).
RST Net's task will be to install a digital control and protection system as well as 110V DC control supply system for the new 132 (145) kV digital substation.
On Landsnet's Facebook page you can see a video of what the new substation will look like, see here.
