The construction of the Hadrut central substation in Azerbaijan will be completed by mid-November 2022, the head of the Karabakh regional power network of Azerishig Janahmad Ahmadov said.

Ahmadov noted that the new central substation, included in the 35 kV ring power system and built between Shukurbayli and Shusha substations, will supply infrastructure electricity needs for various purposes in the settlement of Hadruth.

“Establishing the smart grid control center at the substation will create the basis for ensuring continuous control over the power distribution process, energy efficiency, uninterrupted and high-quality power supply,” he explained.

In addition, Director of Azerishig OJSC Learning and Innovation Center Araz Mammadzada said that the foundation of Hadrut central substation in Azerbaijan was laid in Hadrut settlement of Khojavand district on October 9. 2021.

He noted that a modern type substation will provide reliable and stable power supply to part of Khojavand district, Shusha city and adjacent territories.

“If needed, it will also be possible to supply power to Jabrayil, Gubadli and Zangilan districts through the substation,” Mammadzade added.

He also said that the digital substation being built in Fuzuli will be enough to supply electricity to the people who are expected to be resettled in the area in the near future.

He noted that if necessary, new substations will be built.

The difference of this substation is high efficiency; any information on the status of the power grid is received in digital format, the director stressed.

Here, Azerishiq spokesperson Vagif Aydinoglu pointed out that the Fuzuli digital substation and management center are expected to go into operation in two months.

He noted that the digital substation with a capacity of 2×2500 kW is an innovative solution for monitoring, protection and control systems, which collects and processes all information on the state of the power grid, and also organizes the control of equipment in digital format.

According to Aydinoglu, this project will allow the development of optical digital instrument transformers and complexes of digital equipment of a new generation in substations.
