Hubei Electric Engineering Corporation (HEEC) designed a CNY 172 million indoor secondary transformer station to meet Year 2030 energy demands in excess of 400,000 kilovolts (kV) in the Wuhan East Lake High Tech Zone, Hubei province, China. The scope of the work involved the layout and design of a three-story facility housing three sets of 240-megavolt ampere transformers and providing 220kV, 110kV, and 10kV outgoing lines that consider the constraints of the dense urban location.
HEEC designed the substation and facilitated project collaboration using Bentley Substation, AECOsim Building Designer, Bentley Raceway and Cable Management, ProStructures, and ProjectWise. ProjectWise allowed the design team to work in a unified model space, increasing efficiency and helping to solve clashes. Avoiding rework in at least 10 instances saved CNY 2 million. When completed, this substation will optimize the High Tech Zone’s power grid and improve the quality of life for more than 400,000 people.
