Refurbishment

HVDC systems can be refurbished to increase their revenue, reliability, safety, compliance requirements (NERC/CIP) and even their rating. TGS has a great deal of experience in this area, having overseen the replacement of the following equipment for various projects:

  • Complete control systems
  • HMI
  • Valves and/or cooling systems
  • Smoothing reactors
  • Harmonic Filters
  • Breakers

TGS has been involved in complex refurbishments such as the Transpower Pole 3 replacement and Pole 2 control upgrade, where one complete pole was replaced and only the controls of the other pole were upgraded. TGS can come to your location, assess your equipment and provide services to help transition your equipment with minimum outage time.
