FOZ TUA HYDROELECTRIC POWER PLANT
The Foz Tua Hydroelectric plant is located on the Tua River in Alijó, Portugal and was part of one of the priority projects of the national program on high potential hydroelectric dams.
This pumped storage plant built on the river Tua, a tributary of the river Douro in the north of Portugal, pumps water from the Regua tank of the Tua dam. It will provide a significant contribution to the increasingly important storage of electrical power.
The Foz Tua hydroelectric plant project involves the construction of two reversible power units generating 259 MW, with an annual production of 275 GW hours. The operator is Energias de Portugal (EDP), Portugal’s largest industrial group and one of Europe’s major energy actors.
SDCEM has provided to EFACEC disconnector switches and earthing switches for reversible pumping and auxiliary circuit in 2015. SDCEM scope of supply:
- STARTING DISCONNECTORS: 2 indoor three-phases telescopic disconnectors SC300
- LINE DISCONNECTORS: 2 indoor three-phases vertical break disconnectors SB250
- PHASE REVERSE DISCONNECTOR: 2 indoor two-phases vertical break SB250 disconnectors
- EARTHING SWITCHES: 2 indoor three-phases Earthing Switches ST90
