The representative of city hall of Almaty, Samruk-Energo JSC, AZHK JSC as well as the management of Investment and Industrial Corporation ZHERSU LLP and Kerneu Limited took part in the event dedicated to the opening.
During the opening of station mayor of Almaty Akhmetzhan Essimov told about the development of electric power industry of mertopolitan city. In particular, the mayor noted that "only during the last five years 29 new substations were built. Of course, such scopes of works never existed. This substantially improved the provision of our city power. At the same time during these years the reconstruction of power networks has been conducted that also ensures the reliability of power supply for the city".
Concerning SS 110/10-10 kV "Mamyr" the task of this electric power facility is in the provision with electric power of southwestern part of city with prospect of its development for next 20-25 years. Trasformer capacity of substation "Mamyr" is 126 MVA. "This substation will provide the power for southwestern part of city: residental buildings, production premises, as well as construction of 2 stage of underground", - as Akhmetzhan Essimov informed during his speaking on the opening.
Продолжительность строительства подстанции составила период менее одного года – с сентября 2012 г. по июль 2013 г. Условия плотной городской застройки, не позволившие сооружение открытой подстанции, определили необходимость строительства ПС 110/10-10 кВ «Мамыр» как подстанции закрытого типа.
Duration of substation construction was less thah one year - from September 2012 to July 2013. Restrained urban conditions which didn't allow for constructing the open substation determined the necessity to built SS 110/10-10 kV "Mamyr" as the closed substation.
Kerneu Limited in the project for construction of SS 110/10-10 kV "Mamyr" acted as the general contractor of construction and installation works.
The peculiarity of substation "Mamyr" became the use of equipment which allowed for 40% reduction of total scope of substation building compared to the similar substations with usage of standart equipment 110 kV10. In future this will result in the reduction of expenses for operation of buildung and expected annual power saving will exceed 400 thousand kW/h. Equipment used during the substation construction is manufactured by the leading companies - manufacturers of elecrical equipment, such as: Alstom, Alageum Group, KTZ, ABB etc.
