With the Support of Hotline Construction and Engineering firm Expoente, ENEL Goias completed five 138 kV transmisión line upgrade projects in Goias, Brazil to increase line capacity for the Capital City of Goiania.
ENEL selected Linnet size ACCC® Conductor to increase capacity of all five projects from 109 MVA to 186 MVA. The ACCC Conductor was used to replace existing ACSR Ibis size conductor on existing concrete poles. Centelsa manufactured and delivered over 93 kilometers of ACCC Conductor for the five projects and hardware was provided by Forjasul.
Span lengths ranged from 200 to 250 meters. CTC Global’s Master Installer, Edirlei Zacharias, was on site to provide training and support and the project was completed one month ahead of schedule. These ACCC line upgrades will reinforce the capacity and reliability of the electrical system of the City of Goiania, the Capital of the State of Goias, Brazil.
