PICTORIAL FOCUS ON BUNDA SUBSTATION SWITCH-OFF

On July 15, 2017, ESCOM and Chint Electric Company engineers switched off the existing 7.5 MVA 66/11 kV transformer at Bunda Turn-Off Substation and re-positioned the entire existing transformer and associated switch-gear before re-allocating it outside the substation on a temporary basis. The exercise paved way for the contractor, Chint, to effectively rehabilitate and upgrade the Substation. Here are some of the pictures highlighting the exercise:
