As a part of this process, the bank dam will be increased from 75 m to 83 m in height and three new turbines put into operation, which generate a further 480 MW. In addition, 5 turbines with a total of 270 MW will be added with the project “la represa Aña Cuá”. The total extension will thus be 750 MW.
For the regulation of the new 8.5 MVA transformers and the 33 kV line, the operator has decided to implement 15 OILTAP® V III on-load tap-changers with TAPCON® 230 voltage regulators. The OILTAP® V is an extremely compact tap-changer for regulating low and medium-sized capacities. The 15 OILTAP® V III will ensure a clean and reliable energy supply for Argentina in the future.
