Power Lines projects

Part 1: Gadaref – Alshuwak project (kilo 3)
  • A 220 kilo/volt double line on iron towers
  • Wires are ground wires composed of two parts: optical ground wire (OPGW) and steel ground wire (SGW), area: 240 mm
  • Voltage: 220 kilovolt
  • Length of line: 225 kilometres
  • Present situation: has been planned
  • Implementation period: 18 months
Part 2: Gadaref – Alshuwak (kilo 3) – Kassala – Construction of three sub-stations
  • Kassala sub-station :
    • Type : conversion station with switches outside the station
    • Voltage 220/ 110/ 33 kilowatts
    • Capacity : 2 transformers with 60 mega volts capacity for each
    • Number of line entries and exits: 220 kilovolt = 09, 110 kilovolt = 05
    • Switch with switch board – voltage: 33 kilo volt
  • Alshuwak substation :
    • Type :conversion station with switches outside the station
    • Voltage : 220/ 110/ 33 kilovolt
    • Capacity = 2 transformers with 35 kilovolts
    • Present situation : the project has been planned
    • Implementation period : 18 months
  • Kilo 3 substation :
    • Type : conversion station with switches outside the station
    • Voltage : 220/ 110/ 33 kilovolt
    • Capacity : 2 transformers with capacity 100 megawatts for each
    • Number of switch line entries and exits: 220 kilovolt = 07
    • Switch with switchboard – voltage: 33 kilovolt
    • Present situation: has been planned
    • Implementation period: 18 months
Capacity 75 megawatts
