VIZIMAX is proud to be a part of EDF EN Canada’s Mont-Rothery windfarm project. Located on public land in MRC Côte-de-Gaspé in Quebec, Mont-Rothery was successfully energized December 1st, 2015.
Owned by EDF EN Canada, the Mont-Rothery windfarm comprises of 37 turbines for a total of 74 Megawatts of electricity generated and delivered to the Hydro-Quebec network.
VIZIMAX’s advanced technologies including the RightWON™ substation automation controller and Phasor Measurement Unit, provide the reactive power control solution allowing the windfarm to regulate the network voltage when connected to Hydro-Quebec’s grid.
Furthermore, at the point of connection (POC) to Hydro-Quebec’s network, and during windfarm energizations, the elimination of disturbances from current/voltage transients is provided by the use of VIZIMAX’s SynchroTeq™ controlled switching device. The SynchroTeq™ limits inrush currents and voltage transients during power transformer energizations while extending the lifecycle of the substation’s critical assets.
As a global leader of HV and MV circuit breaker controlled switching, VIZIMAX develops and manufactures innovative solutions that optimize how energy is generated, transmitted and consumed while always accounting for our client’s new and existing assets.
