EnePRO started power substation modernization work in Birštonas

EnePRO has started a transformer substation reconstruction project in Birštonas upon the order of electricity and gas distribution company Energijos Skirstymo Operatorius (ESO). The modernization of the substation will ensure a reliable power supply to ESO customers.

The reconstruction project value of the tansformer substation that is located in the Birštonas Regional Park amounts to EUR 1.38 million (excluding VAT). Instead of one existing high voltage transformer, two parallel operating transformers will be built during the project. In this way, there will be a significant increase in power supply reliability for electricity consumers in Birštonas town and surrounding areas. In addition, after replacing the overhead lines with underground cables, the landscape beloved by the residents and resort guests will become more beautiful. The completion of the work is anticipated in November 2016.

Rytis Borkys, Director of Network Development Division at ESO, says that modern transformer substations will meet contemporary standards, will be more effective and easier to manage.
