Hyd’Occ project : craning the transformer on site

Last week, a key event took place on the construction site of the HV substation in Port-la-Nouvelle: the delivery and installation of the power transformer, manufactured in the Lyon region. With this latest milestone, the site is continuing to make progress, thanks to our site teams, who are fully committed to meeting the deadlines!

Cap Ingelec has been selected by the renewable energy company QAIR, through the Hyd’Occ project, as general contractor for the design and construction of the 63kV/20kV high-voltage power supply substation. This will supply the future hydrogen production plant using the electro-chemical process of water electrolysis.

The construction project consists of :

  • A property project comprising civil engineering, infrastructure, building, roads and other networks and external works,
  • A private 63kV/20kV electrical transformer station with a capacity of 36MVA.

Cap Ingelec stood out from the crowd by proposing innovative technical solutions that perfectly matched the customer’s expectations, while staying within budget and on schedule.
