Ingeteam’s Ingepac EF MD relays to protect Taweelah Power Station (UAE) Distribution Grid

Ingeteam will supply its Multifunction Relay Ingepac EF MD model to protect Taweelah Power Station’s Distribution Grid during their upcoming upgrade project. The Ingepac EF MD has been selected as the most suitable solution for the retrofit project thanks to its compact size, multifunction capabilities and user friendly configuration and operation which will minimize project execution time whilst providing full compliance with the end user’s requirements.

The project will be executed by Ingeteam’s partner Delta Star PPS, who will provide re-engineering, relay replacement and adaption, solution configuration and protection testing commissioning services. Delta Star has a group of highly skilled engineers that can provide any protection related service, from relay setting and coordination studies to field protection testing and commissioning.
