Tesco is pleased to be assisting in the electrical and mechanical installation of Evraz’s 15kV ABB SVC Lt Project. This project will addresses the violent forces released from Evraz’s electric arc furnace, that if unmanaged, could impose a wide band of disturbances across the plant’s power system, resulting in voltage instabilities and power quality issues. Tesco was responsible for the installation of the primary plant, including the erection of the HV equipment and aluminum bus. We were tasked with installing the conduits and grounding grid; mounting the P&C panels, SCADA panels, and IGBT valves within the control building. We’ve also been assigned the task of pulling and terminating all the cables between the control building and yard, as well as interface cabling to the existing plant and existing SVC, including the installation and termination of the 15kv 500MCM cable. Although the project is still under construction, we look forward to working with Evraz and ABB in completing the job, which is expected to be commissioned in 2014.
