UCOM-MHE-ENDE-25-11-2022.- With the implementation of a synchronous static compensation team
(Statcom), President Luis Arce Catacora, the Minister of Hydrocarbons and Energies, Franklin Molina
Ortiz, and the Vice President of Ende Corporation, Mauricio Arevey, inaugurated on Thursday the second
transmission line 230 kilowol (kV) trunks – Guarayos – Paraíso – Trinidad, which
closes the energy ring in Beni and guarantees the continuity and quality of electricity supply to
families of the capital Trinidad.
“We have a plan that is industrialize Beni, for this you need water and electricity, so today
We inaugurate the transmission line to have a stable electricity service in Trinidad, which
guarantee the industrialization process, “said the president during the official act, to the
Refer that this second stage of the project required an investment of BS76.4 million.
“We are doing a rural electrification plan because everyone has the right to access the service of
Stable electricity 365 days a year.The National Government meets, we are here to deliver works
and contribute to the development and progress of the department of Beni, ”added Arce.
For its part, Minister Molina that the STATCOM system is a new technology, implemented by
first time in the Bolivian high voltage system, and on this occasion, to favor the development of
The Beniana capital.
“There were a long time in their homes for a long time and the electrical equipment product
They burned, today thanks to this project the electrical system will be reinforced, “he said.
The transmission line extends the trunk system interconnected to the north of the department of
Santa Cruz and the city of Trinidad, through the construction of substations and lines of
230 kV transmission and 115 kV.
The project, located to 11 km from the city of Beni, has two stages: the first stage
Consiste on the construction of a flood transmission line 383 km of long 230 kV,
What initis in the substation of the trunks, passes by the new substances of the intermediaries of
paradise 230/115 kV and quarry to the substation of the existent in Trinidad.
This project will increase the capacity of electric transmission to meet the growing demand for
That region of the country.In addition, it will help replace the thermoelectric generation of the
isolated system in
Ascension of Guarayos and reduce the thermoelectric generation of the Moxos Central in Trinidad.Both
Generation centrals use diesel, which represents a very high cost in the economic and also
The statcom is a static reactive power compensation system, which controls the levels of
voltage required by the system in stationary and dynamic state conditions.It’s a team
important for the national electrical system, because it allows to improve stability, ensure the
operation, avoid possible collapses in the transmission network and dispense with local generation based
Diesel at the Moxos de Trinidad plant.
