Corum has produced transformer substations for the Estonian concern
Company Corum has produced and shipped to Viru Keemia Grupp (VKG), the largest Estonian company on production of shale oil and shale chemical products, six transformer substations of KTPV type.
The modern equipment is provided with additional options which extend its functionality. The special meter allows the equipment to control the amount of power consumption, and the circuit breaker protects substations against overload.
According to Vladimir Merzlikin, the Director of Infrastructure projects Division of Corum Group, due to the special natural conditions of the region the order has required custom solutions: the substations have been adapted for operation in wet places.
Note that the company produces the equipment of this type over the period of fourteen years. Only for last year Corum has made and delivered to its customers: Kazakh mining giant "Kazakhmys", "Ural Mining and Metallurgical Company", and DTEK, over two hundred units of this equipment.
In addition, the company delivers transformer substations to Belarus and Macedonia.
Information about the substations

Substations are executed as a single unit consisting of the high-voltage switchgear, the dry-type power transformer, and the low voltage switchgear all placed on a skid with possibility to fasten mine car wheelsets to it.
