Tudan 275kV Substation Construction
Alstom has been awarded a turnkey contract by Sarawak Energy Bhd (SEB) to reconstruct the 275 kilovolts (kV) Tudan substation in Sarawak.
The project, to be completed in phases over 41 months, will strengthen the Sarawak Grid for reliable electricity supply to the Miri population, the second largest city in Sarawak, as well as industries in and around the Northern Region in Sarawak. Alstom will supply the necessary civil works, as well as products and commissioning, for the upgrade, including a new 275 kV switchyard and two new 240 MVA auto transformers. Alstom will also relocate existing systems and auxiliaries from present site to the new substation.
SEB is the state owned utility serving over 500,000 account holders on East Malaysia and a generating capacity of over 350 gigawatts (GW).This project is part of SEB’s efforts to support Sarawak’s development strategy and new power plants, completed or forthcoming, to strengthen the electricity grid to ensure efficient transmission and to help manage load distribution.
The Sarawak Corridor of Renewable Energy, for instance, is one of Malaysia’s five economic corridors that aims to improve infrastructure, manage urbanisation and develop renewable power generation to encourage industrial investments accelerating Sarawak’s economic growth and development.
