Supporting The Grid 2 x 10 MW Base Load Station
The challenge to the customer
Two locations on the Island of Rhodes Greece needed additional
power to support the influx of tourists. During the busy season,
power demand at this popular Mediterranean resort area surpassed
the local grid capacity.
Aggreko supplied 2 x 10 MW of power to support the grid during
the three months. Both plants comprised generator along with step
up transformers and associated HV switchgear. The plants operated
in parallel with the grid and all generator sets operated in base
load. The generators were fitted with electronic controllers and
synchronizing units. Synchronizing was achieved both manually and
fully automatically using Aggreko AT remote control panels.
The benefits to the customer
Aggreko’s temporary power station created and maintained
additional power for the island in a cost effective manner. The
customer chose Aggreko's services due to the flexibility and
commercial suitability of our offer.
