The work performed by the company comprised the change of two 40 MVA transformers by two 80 MVA transformers (duplicating the installed capacity), the installation of 10 new feeders and 16 km of medium voltage network. Moreover, the whole internal equipment was replaced by equipment with higher technology and new board with two sections of 13.2 KV (medium voltage).
