Edesur starts construction of substation in Rancho Arriba

Edesur Dominicana broke ground for the construction of a substation in Rancho Arriba, to improve the electric service in the area, which will serve as a boost for agricultural producers and residents of that demarcation.

The general manager of Edesur, Milton Morrison, said that a 5-7 MVA, 69/12.5 kV power transformer will be installed. The project will be at 69/12.5 kV and contemplates civil and electromechanical works for its commissioning.
