CG won a $25 million new contract win for the design, construction and delivery of 16 mobile substations. The order was placed by the General Directorate for Transmission, Upper Euphrates Region, Ministry of Electricity in Iraq.

The key deliverables are engineering and supply of 16 mobile substations containing 31.5 MVA transformers delivered by CG’s Power Transformer factory in Hungary, auxiliary/earthing units manufactured in the Distribution Transformer factory in Belgium and control and protection equipment provided by CG’s Automation arm ZIV. Integration and assembly work for the project will be concluded at the CG factory in Belgium.

The suite of mobile substations will be  deployed throughout Iraq for utilities and industries to provide interim grid connections and temporary power supplies. CG’s short-track delivery of mobile units allows flexible use in the Iraqi grid.

Typically its applications would range from power supply during emergency or planned outages, to moving loads, and the integration of distributed or renewable generation. Delivery is expected to be completed by September 2015.
