1/18/2015

 France, Levallois-Perret: Alstom Grid Turkey has successfully delivered the generator transformer designed and manufactured for the Public Enterprise - Electric Power Industry of Serbia (EPS) to be installed at Nikola Tesla Power Plant Tent-B.


The 725 MVA, 21/410 kV power transformer featuring the largest generator step-up transformer ever designed and manufactured in Turkey is also the first export of Alstom Turkey to Serbia, reports Newswire Today.

Nikola Tesla Thermal Power Plant is the largest power plant complex in Serbia meeting the energy needs of almost half of the country with annual power generation of 18 TWh. Alstom’s step-up transformer will transport the electricity from the generator to the point of consumption through high voltage transmission line, thus connecting the power station with Serbian 400 kV transmission network.

“With the help of this generator step-up transformer and the integration of online monitoring system, Nikola Tesla PP will be able to serve its consumers with a stable and reliable high voltage system and to increase the power plant’s efficiency automatically,” said Hakan Karadogan, General Manager of Alstom Turkey Power Transformers.
