- Reactive power compensation
plant based on SVC PLUS technology
- Project execution time of only
- Enables smooth integration of
large amounts of wind and solar power into the grid
Siemens Energy will supply a reactive
power compensation plant to the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power
(LADWP). The plant will enhance operations at Barren Ridge Switching Station,
LADWP’s renewable energy transmission facility in Kern County, California,
about 80 miles north of Los Angeles. The plant will be based on Siemens
Energy’s SVC PLUS technology that combines the benefits of static synchronous
compensation (STATCOM) and modular multilevel converter (MMC) technology. The
fast response of the STATCOM stabilizes the transmission system when the amount
of power generated by solar, wind or hydro generation changes. The MMC
technology allows the implementation of this complex technology in a very small
footprint compared to traditional solutions. The new ±200 megavolt ampere
(MVAr) SVC PLUS will provide the necessary voltage support needed in the area, where LADWP has significantly
increased renewable energy generation.

- ARESS innovation project contributes to grid control and stabilization, paving the way for the
energy transition in Germany
- Cooperation develops an asynchronous phase shifter
The German transmission system operator Amprion and Siemens Energy signed a cooperation
agreement today in Mülheim an der Ruhr in North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany, on the close
cooperation in the development of new technologies controlling electrical networks. Together, the
two companies are developing the first asynchronous phase shifter called Asynchronous Rotating
Energy System Stabilizer (ARESS) for a network frequency of 50 Hertz (Hz). Dr. Hendrik Neumann,
Technical Director of Amprion, and Dr. Jochen Eickholt, member of the Managing Board of Siemens
Energy, signed the agreement in the presence of North Rhine-Westphalia’s Minister of Economic
Affairs, Innovation, Digitalization and Energy, Prof. Dr. Andreas Pinkwart.
- India's first electricity link featuring voltage-sourced converter technology in commercial
- First hybrid application of DC-XLPE cable and overhead transmission line
- Total system of two links allows electricity exchange of up to 2,000 megawatts to meet
country’s power deficits
The joint venture of Siemens Energy and Sumitomo Electric has completed connecting India’s first high-voltage direct current (HVDC) link featuring voltage-sourced converter (VSC) and DC-XLPE cable technology. The 2,000 megawatts (MW) electricity transmission system consists of two converter stations, that are connected via two links comprising DC-XLPE cable and overhead transmission line. It enables the power exchange between Pugalur in the southern state of Tamil Nadu and Trichur in Kerala State in South-West India and supports transmission operator Power Grid Corporation of India (PGCIL) to counter power deficit in India’s southern region and improve the grid stability. Siemens Energy supplied the two converter stations for the ±320 kilovolt (kV) HVDC system while Sumitomo Electric was responsible for the XLPE HVDC cable system in the DC circuit.
- Two jack-up rigs were retrofitted with Siemens Energy’s BlueVault™ lithium-ion energy storage system.
- Initial data show that the low-emission upgrades in batteries, data monitoring, and other efficiency measures can deliver reductions in CO2 by up to 25 percent and NOx emissions by up to 95 percent.
Energy signed an agreement with Maersk Drilling to upgrade two ultra-harsh
environment CJ70 jack-up drilling rigs in the North Sea with hybrid power
plants using lithium-ion energy storage. The rigs – the Maersk Intrepid and Maersk
Integrator – were retrofitted with BlueVault™ batteries from Siemens Energy.
They are the first jack-ups to employ a combination of hybrid, low-emission
solutions on the Norwegian Continental Shelf.
