Going on with the implementation of innovative solutions for hydroelectric plants with very low environmental impact

STE Energy has been awarded, by an important player in the electricity sector, the design development of a power plant with a VLH turbine located in Italy. This is the first step towards the construction of the new plant to be completed in the first quarter of 2022.

The new plant will take advantage of the head of an existing protection barrier in one of the main rivers in northern Italy: considering the possible significant flow of the river, the turbine will be equipped with an upgraded trash rack cleaning system provided with a telescopic arm.

Another VLH turbine will provide renewable energy to the Italian national grid by the end of 2021. A new contract has been signed for the construction of a hydropower plant with a VLH turbine (vlh-turbine.com) of over 300kW in the province of Pavia. The plant will take advantage of the existing head created by a protection barrier of a bridge over the Terdoppio river.

This VLH will be equipped with the new innovative trash rack as well as the automatic sediment trap system installed on the bottom of the machine.

New small hydro power plant connected to the grid.

New small hydro power plant connected to the grid.

The commissioning of a new small hydro power plant on the Nera river has been completed. The plant uses the ecological flow of an existing dam in Terni, thanks to the installation of an innovative siphon turbine that exploits the available head of approximately 6 meters.

STE Energy continues to increase the O&M activity in Sardinia with new projects

Ste energy continues to increase the o&m activity in sardinia with new projects

STE Energy reaches another important milestone in Operation & Maintenance in Sardinia, signing two more O&M service contracts for the management of two additional hydro power plants.

The controlled installed power arises up to about 75MW and, thanks to the new remote control center, STE Energy will provide its innovative services, focusing on the efficiency and performance maximization of these important hydro plants with dams.

Machine learning algorithms, combined with meteorological and inflow forecasts, will be applied in the management of these projects, aiming at optimal dispatch plan and generating added value for the client.

Rio Escondido digital substation commissioning carried out in Chile

Rio Escondido digital substation commissioning carried out in Chile

In January 2021, the Rio Escondido digital high voltage substation – located in Chile – was energized. STE Energy operated as EPC contractor in the construction of this important electrical infrastructure. Thanks to all the people who made it possible to achieve this important goal in such a complicated year.

STE at work in the heart of the European electrical grid.

STE at work in the heart of the European electrical grid.

A contract for the design and supply of the electrical protection system for a Phase Shifting Transformer to be installed on the border among Germany, Luxembourg and France has been signed. This special transformer will increase the controllability of the active power flow, improving the exploitation of the existing electricity infrastructure and avoiding overload outages in such an important node of the European interconnected transmission system.
