  1. Sabanitas – Panamá III Line and Associated Substations


Project Summary

Because the near future integration of new natural gas generation plants at Colon province in the Atlantic, it is required that the existing transmission system between the Panama and Colon provinces to be reinforced to transmit this additional generation. Then it is necessary to construct a new transmission line from the Colon area, this new 230 KV transmission line will be built from the town of Sabanitas to the city of Panama (Sabanitas Panama III 230 KV); which requires the following works: a. Line Sabanitas – Panama III 230 KV: line of 230 KV, double circuit, it will have an approximate length of 50 km. b. Expansion of the 230 KV Sabanitas substation: Two (2) new bays and switches for connecting the 230 KV Panama III substation double-circuit transmission line will be required. c. Expansion 230 KV Panama III substation bays

  1. Panama III 230 / 115 KV Substation

Project Summary

This project consists on the construction of a new 230/115 KV Panama III substation, breaker and a half circuit breaker layout in a hybrid distribution scheme, that is switches, breakers, blades and CTs shall be SF6 encapsulated, the substation yard will be located in the Mocambo sector near Panama city.

This substation will serve as an interconnection point for new transmission lines for the distribution companies that feed the demand of through new smaller substations, and also connecting transmission lines coming from the West (LT-2 and LT-3) and the line from Sabanitas substation coming from Colon, where the future thermal power plants will be installed.

  1. Chiriquí Grande – Panamá III 500 KV Line and Associated Substations

Project Summary

Due to the construction of new hydroelectric, solar, wind and thermal power stations in the western side of the country, it´s necessary to increase the transmission capacity of the electric power lines originating at Chiriquí and Bocas del Toro towards the metropolitan area of Panama and Colon cities.  Given the increase in load in the metropolitan areas, we require the studies for design and construction of a Fourth transmission line from Bocas del Toro province, beginning at a new 500KV Chiriquí Grande substation, to the new 500KV Panama III substation. The following works are required for the operation of this project:

  1. 1280MVA, 500 KV Transmission line with an approximate length of 330 km.
  2. Construction of a new 500/230 KV Chiriquí Grande substation, build an extension of the 500/230 KV Panama III substation and the installation of Static-Var Compensator of +150 / – 30 MVAR at Panama III substation.

Type of Project 500 KV Transmission Line and 500/230KV Substation

Project Cost B/. 474,982,000

Project Structure There will be a design and construction bid that will include environmental, sociological, operating and coordination studies

Programing Date March, 2017
