The new electrical substation will allow the engines of the ships to be connected to shore power while they are docked in the Port of València The project includes the installation of two transformers with an apparent power of 30 Mega voltamperes (MVA) each València, February 17, 2021- The new electrical substation of the Port of València that will allow the interconnection of the network of
the facilities of the Port Authority of Valencia (APV) with the 132 kv high voltage distribution network has taken another step with the publication of the specifications for the contracting of the construction management. This substation is one more example of Valenciaport’s commitment to its 2030 goal, zero emissions, and progress in the electrification project of the docks of the Port of València to connect the engines of the ships to shore power while they are docked port facilities. Specifically, the specifications that have been published for the substation are aimed at hiring the construction management service and coordinating the health and safety of the construction of the transformer substation and the new underground line. The budget for the tender is close to €600,000 and includes an estimated execution period of 23 months. This substation, which is scheduled to be operational from 2022, will provide services to the different docks of the Port of València, the future northern container terminal and the public passenger terminal. This action is part of the APV’s firm commitment to 2030, zero emissions, which will anticipate the decarbonisation and greenhouse gas reduction targets that Spain, Europe and international organizations have projected for 2050 by two decades. Valenciaport is working on other projects such as the installation of photovoltaic or wind power plants, the use of green hydrogen or the supply of LNG, among others. Characteristics of the new substation The electrical substation project contemplates the installation -in two stages- of two transformers with a total apparent power of 60 Mega Volt amperes (30 MVA each), which will reduce the received voltage to 132 kV (132,000 volts, or 132 Kilo Volts ) up to 20 kV (20,000 volts, or 20 Kilo Volts), as a preliminary step to get this voltage to the different points of the APV facilities; including the terminal docks to facilitate the connection of ships to the network.
