ENDE TRANSMISIÓN CONCLUDES INSTALLATION OF THE FIRST 230 kV UNDERGROUND ELECTRIC TRANSMISSION LINE IN THE COUNTRY.

ENDE Transmisión S.A., A subsidiary of ENDE Corporación, is currently executing the project “Transmission Line in 500 kV Carrasco – Santivañez and Associated Substations”, being the first electric transmission line in 500 kV in Bolivia, a historical milestone in the construction and subsequent maintenance of this type of high-voltage lines of great transport capacity, a work that positions the country at the level of the electricity sector of the neighboring countries of the American continent.

As part of the scope of this great project, there is the interconnection of the Santivañez and Santivañez II substations, in which two types of 230 kV power lines are managed; an overhead section of 360 meters and another underground section of 410 meters to the ISA substation.

The installation of this 230 kV underground line, which is used to allow the crossing (below) of 4 existing lines at the outlet of the Santivañez substation, is also the first of these characteristics in our country, which was built from the stage of civil works until conducting diagnostic tests of the cable for its subsequent commissioning.

It should be noted that this project is built with its own engineering and Bolivian labor, becoming a historic milestone for the country’s Electricity Sector.
