The Efacec Power Solutions Group, through Efacec Power Solutions Brazil, was contracted to modernize and automate two substations in the city of Rio de Janeiro: the Santíssimo Substation, located in Campo Grande, and Samaritano, in Botafogo. Both belong to the distribution network of Light Serviços de Eletricidade, an electricity supply company that is present in 31 municipalities in the state of Rio de Janeiro, distributing energy to more than 10 million people in Brazil.

The Santíssimo 138/25 kV substation will receive an automation system with IEDs manufactured by Efacec, a modernization that will guarantee the stability of the electrical network as a safe power supply under a protection and control system, based on the latest version of the IEC standard 61850. The 138/13.8kV Samaritano substation will also operate with new IEDs integrated into the new system. The two projects are responsible for conducting electricity to approximately 4 million consumers.

Efacec Power Solutions Brazil, a company of the Efacec Power Solutions Group, will be responsible for the automation, system parameterization, installation and testing of the panels, as well as the verification of Substation operational needs and requirements. The project will be completed in October 2022.
