alstom (ALO) Key Developments

Alstom Appoints David Cannafoglia as Director of Alstom Transport Site in Bologna

David Cannafoglia has been appointed Director of Alstom Transport site in Bologna. The plant is Alstoms worldwide centre of excellence for signalling systems and employs around 600 people. Before joining Alstom, David developed his competences in signalling in Ansaldo STS, managing signalling projects in Libya, USA, Brazil and UAE, where he has been Principal Program Manager and Branch Director. Among other projects, D. Cannafoglia will be responsible for the delivery of important projects at international and local level, as the replacement of the current railway signalling system in eastern Denmark and the node of Rome metro lines.

Alstom Signs Contract with National Grid to Trial Insulating System in UK

Alstom has signed a contract with National Grid to trial insulating system for the UK's high voltage power network. The contract will see National Grid use Alstom's g3 (green gas for grid), a gas mixture that can replace SF6 for high voltage Air Insulated (AIS) or Gas Insulated switchgear (GIS) applications, for a 300 meter gas-insulated busbar in Sellindge, in Kent. The Alstom g3 being used in the 420 kV gas-insulated busbar will be able to operate to temperatures as low as -25°C, with the system due to be commissioned by mid-2016. The Sellindge project is an integral part of National Grid's intended network reinforcement plans and so the g3 system will be deployed in an operationally critical part of the UK's transmission network. The Sellindge converter station joins Interconnexion France-Angleterre to the 2,000 MW HVDC interconnector which links the British and French electricity transmission systems. The converter stations on both sides of the English Channel were built by Alstom, with the link capable of supplying around three million homes. Alstom has supplied 250 bays of 420 kV GIS to National Grid over the course of a 35-year working relationship between the two companies. The g3 equipment will be engineered, manufactured and tested at Alstom Grid's factory in France.

Alstom Introduces Two New High-Voltage Applications Using g3

Alstom has introduced two first high-voltage applications using green gas for grid, or g3, a gas mixture that can replace SF6 for high voltage air-insulated, or AIS, or gas-insulated switchgear, or GIS, applications. The first application is a pilot project for a 420 kV g3-insulated busbar. Alstom has been awarded a contract by the UK's National Grid Electricity Transmission PLC to trial, as part of an innovation project, a 420 kV g3-insulated busbar for use at temperatures as low as -25°C. The 300 meter-long line will be located in Sellindge, in the South East of UK and will be commissioned by mid of 2016. The second application is a 245 kV current transformer type SKF using g3. This high voltage equipment for outdoor applications, displayed at Hanover Fair, uses g3 as insulation medium, with the capability of reaching temperatures as low as -30°C. The current transformer protects substations by providing accurate and reliable current measurements used for metering.
