Recently, the construction of Cixi’s first indoor two-storey steel intelligent substation came to the end. The 110 kv substation – Zhen Long Bian Substation, with a total investment of 84.78 million yuan, is based in the Coastal Economic Development Zone, Cixi. It will provide enough power to the industrial areas developed at stage three in the Coastal Economic Development Zone and alleviate the pressure of other 110 kv substations like Long Shan Bian Substation and Ling Feng Bian Substation.
Zhen Long Bian Substation is built in line with the general design of State Grid Corporation of China, which adopts integrated automation system and requires few watchmen. Being the only substation of its kind in Ningbo, it is steel-structured and uses prefabricated optical and electrical cables to simplify the construction process and thus reduce the time of construction.
Last year, Cixi altogether built four 110 kv substations and put them into operation; it continued the construction of a 220 kv substation and carried out two supporting projects; it also started to lay a 550 kv power line. The intensive power grid construction in recent years offers strong support to the economic recovery. It is reported that last year, the total power consumption in Cixi reached 10.46 billion kwh, the first time of exceeding 10 billion kwh, showing a year-on-year increase of 7.35%.
