Vale

The objective of the Copper Cliff No. 8 project was to increase the overall reliability of the substation by removing the antiquated transformer and fuse cut-out and upgrade the substation to meet the current Vale protection standards. Similarly, the requirements for the Copper Cliff No. 6 project were to increase the overall reliability of the substation by removing the antiquated transformer, oil circuit breaker and switchgear line-up. By awarding BESTECH FEL2 studies for both projects, we were able to generate an innovative solution that combined both substations, minimizing capital requirements and increasing overall reliability of the system

  • FEL1 and FEL2 Studies – identify possible options such as upgrade, replacement, locations, and refine the best options to determine if we should move towards replacement or upgrade
  • FEL3 Study – refine capital cost budgets, complete a detailed scope of work, and further define the design criteria
