Pampa Energia de Argentina Completes ACCC® Reconductoring Project

Earlier this month, Pampa Energia de Argentina completed their 132 kV ACCC Reconductoring project on the Corti Wind Farm to the Bahía Blanca substation of the Transba Región Sur company. Pampa Energia selected 788 kcmil (367.4 mm^2) Cordoba size ACCC® Conductor to replace the original 300/50 mm^2 ACSR conductor, thereby increasing line capacity to 1,200 amps. Engineering for the project was provided by SACDE and installation was provided by Ingenieria Ronza SA. The ACCC Conductor installed at the project was provided by IMSA and hardware was provided by Dervaux. ACCC Master Installers, Mr. Sergio Rojas and Mr. Ismael Dones offered remote Installation training and field support during the installation (due to Covid travel restrictions). Pampa Energia de Argentina is a company dedicated to the generation, transmission and distribution of electrical energy, generating 4,944 MW of energy through thermal, hydroelectric and wind farms. This is the first installation in Argentina of the ACCC Córdoba conductor produced by IMSA. Bahía Blanca is a seaport city in the southwest province of Buenos Aires, Argentina, at the Atlantic Ocean. The climate is subtropical and characterized by wide variations in temperatures.
