“The R#SPACE pilot project strengthens our position in France, where we have signed more than 100 million euros in contracts over the last two years, particularly in the area of transformers, with the various network operators in the French market,” says Rui Dias Jorge, Product Manager for Efacec’s Protection Automation and Control (PAC) division.
The intelligent digital substation in Ploeren marks a paradigm shift, making the operation of the French electricity system more efficient, resilient and secure, using a solution with much less environmental impact and, thus, substantially reducing the carbon footprint.
Efacec’s automation and control products – TPU L500, MCU 500 and Automation Studio – have been formally approved by RTE as part of the R#SPACE project, which will form the basis of the future power grid protection and control system.
These products stand out both for their technological complexity and their ability to meet the functional and integration requirements defined by the customer. They were designed from scratch to be a structuring element of the intelligent digital substation and are pillars of the Efacec portfolio, in line with the most advanced protection and automation technology for electricity transmission substations.
