Ingeteam has renewed its distribution contract with TEMPOS SERV SRL in the Romanian market, for its electrical distribution grid control and protection products.
With the prospect of renewable energy development foreseen in this country, in 2013 Ingeteam decided to strengthen its presence in Romania in collaboration with a local company. The aim was to expand Ingeteam's presence in the market and to render our products compatible with more strategic clients, thus offering a more personalised, tangible service.
Under these premises, collaboration commenced with TEMPOS SERV SRL as the distribution company, the first results appearing in 2013. 2013 saw the first equipment of the INGEPAC EF
platform being installed for PV plant grid interconnection switchgear in Romania. Likewise, progress was made to certify equipment in the country's major electrical distribution companies.
During the same year, another huge commercial achievement took place: the signing of the first direct contract with a Romanian contractor (ENERGOMONTAJ S.A.) for supplying the complete control and protection solution (equipment and services) for the Movila windfarm. The project's end user is EDP Renováveis, also the owner of another two windfarms in Romania (Cobadín and Facaeni), both of which have comprehensive control and protection solutions supplied by Ingeteam.
Since 2011, Ingeteam has accumulated major references in Romania in collaboration with global leaders in the wind sector. These include IBERDROLA RENOVABLES, in whose first Romanian project (the Mihai Viteazu 80 MW windfarm), Ingeteam supplied the substation's protection and control system.
