Torkkola wind power station

Arcteq’s AQ 300 and AQ 200 series protection and control IEDs and AQ 100 arc protection systems are protecting the wind power collector station in Torkkola on the West Coast of Finland. All Arcteq IEDs communicate to a Siemens PAS substation controller using the IEC 61850 communication standard. This 20kV substation owned by EPV Tuulivoima Oy has been energised since 2014 and all 16 turbines of 3.3MW are connected to grid.

Svartvallsberget wind power station

In 2014 Arcteq installed AQ F215 type of feeder protection IEDs to protect and control the wind power substation of Svartvallsberget, Sweden. Automation of this 24kV substation is implemented using Modbus TCP protocol in the AQ F215 units.
