A CHP plant is under construction in Hadera (Israel) comprising two gas turbines and a steam turbine. The plant will have an output of 150 MW and will supply electricity and steam, covering the variable demand of paper mill Hadera Paper. It will also supply electricity at 161 kV to the national Israeli grid by means of a substation located on site.
Vilfer Electric has taken part in the construction of the plant by supplying medium voltage ISOBUSBAR© IMT-17.5/35 type busbars, designed for an insulation voltage of 17.5 kV and transmission of 3,500 A. These busbars offer a protection level of IP68 thanks to the fact they are completely encapsulated in polymer resin. Vilfer Electric has also supplied this plant with low voltage ISOBUSBAR© ISC type waterproof busbars, designed to transmit power in the region of 4,500 A and 5,000 A.
