Project details

Route description

On the occasion of a new 2×35 kV line route description, a direction from „Niš 15“ (Doljevac) Substation towards the existing 35kV power transmission line „Klisura“ Substation – „Žitorađa“ Substation, has been adopted as a reference route direction.

Cable lines are leaving the „Niš 15“ (Doljevac) Substation from its southern side, and upon exiting the enclosed area are being directed towards the west in order to by-pass the Substation. Then, the route turns right and follows a plateau embankment of the same power transformer station, by-passes it and continues to the north towards the access road for the „Niš 15“ (Doljevac) Substation. The existing underground cable system is used for passing beneath the access road to the Substation. Upon leaving the underground cable system, the line route turns slightly to the left and approaches the class II A state road number 158 (km 194+728). Then, it leads slightly to the right (upon leaving the new underground cable system beneath a field road) and continues along the state road. Cable line maintains that direction until reaching the first tower location (km 194+389) where it separates from the II A-158 state road, and reaches the new overhead line tower number 1.

Parallel with the projected 35 kV cable lines, one HDPE pipe 50mm in diameter is laid, and an optical cable is pulled through it.

Along the cable line route, cable shafts for telecommunication line were built. Optical cable ends within the „Niš 15“ (Doljevac) Substation facility, in the optical end box, and on the tower number 1.

The entire cable line is placed partially in a green area, and on the passing bellow the access road to „Niš 15“ (Doljevac) Substation, it goes through the existing underground cable system.

Route of the overhead section has a general south-north direction. From the new tower number 1 to the new tower number 15, an overhead line is installed as a two-way system on a steel lattice tower. The power transmission line is installed in a flat surface, covered with arable land.

Tower number 15 is placed on the route of existing 35kV power transmission line from „Klisura“ Substation to „Žitorađa“ Substation. By doing so, it is secured that the existing line route matches the tower’s x-axis.

Social and economic interest

Construction of this power transmission line secures a stable power supply for the 35/10 kV “Klisura” Substation, where the problem of maintaining the level of supply is being resolved, and safety of supply is being secured, as well as the possibility of future capacity expansion for this substation.

Besides direct expected effects in terms of the energy system functioning within Doljevac’s electric energy network, there are numerous indirect effects.
All this is in function of sustainable economic development of the entire area, not only in terms of supply for the existing consumers, but also as a potential for the future investments development. Economic effects of a power transmission line construction are achieved as well through the relatively high participation of domestic workforce and industry, practically without importing the equipment from abroad.

The effect of planning itself shall reflect through a clear defining of construction rules in the field of planned elaboration, for the purposes of defining the spatial planning conditions, regulation and construction of a power transmission line and supporting infrastructure.

Start/completion year:

2018 – 2018

Location:

Paraćin Municipality (Glavica Cadastral Municipality, Paraćin Cadastral Municipality, Bošnjane Cadastral Municipality, Popovac Cadastral Municipality)
Ćuprija Municipality (Batinac Cadastral Municipality)

Investor:

ODS EPS Distribucija,
Jagodina Branch

Project details

Technical information

The existing 35 kV power line between 110/35 kV “Paraćin 1” Substation and 35/10 kV “Paraćin 6” Substation (Popovac) consists of three different sections, and different types of works were executed in each section:

  • The first section was built on double-circuit steel lattice towers. This section was in good condition and the following works were carried out: rehabilitation of towers in terms of completing missing positions, replacement of existing insulation and replacement of the existing protective cable with OPGW.
  • The second section stretches from the point of connection of the first section to the point of connection to the old 35 kV power line for Popovac stretching from the direction of Ćuprija and Jagodina. This section was in good condition and the following works were carried out: rehabilitation of concrete towers, which showed concrete damage and cracks, replacement of insulation and replacement of the existing protective cable with OPGW.
  • The third section stretches from the point of connection of the second section to the 35/10 kV “Paraćin 6” Substation and represents the worst section. The following works were carried out there: Replacement of existing reinforced concrete towers with steel tubular towers, replacement of conductors, replacement of insulation, replacement of the existing protective cable with OPGW. In addition, two line disconnectors for the purpose of line sectioning were installed on this power line.

Social and economic interest

The existing 35 kV power line between Paraćin and Popovac supplies 35/10 kV “Popovac” Substation. The power supply to this substation is radial and any dropout of this line leaves a large number of consumers without electricity. On the other hand, this line consists of three sections, one with steel lattice towers, the other with reinforced concrete towers of the “Karpoš” type and the third with reinforced-concrete towers which are over 50 years old. Poor insulation over the entire power line and worn-out third section caused many outages.

The newly constructed section is 16.1 km long and has 75 steel lattice Christmas-tree-shaped towers. The new section also included complete electrical installation work and a 3xAl/Steel-240/40 mm² conductor was installed. The part of the existing transmission line undergoing adaptation is 5.8 km long and has 19 portal pylons. Their existing conductor was replaced with a special 3×ACCC Helsinki conductor, which was then used in Serbia for the first time. OPGW with 48 optical fibres was also installed in the entire section.

Social and economic interest

The Development Strategy of the Republic of Serbia anticipates construction of wind farms.

In Vršac region, one of the planned wind farms is Košava Wind Farm with power lines for connecting Košava
Wind Farm to the transmission network.

The construction of wind farms results in generation of electricity from renewable sources, i.e. from wind energy, which makes Serbia strategically positioned as a green energy producer.

Wind power is one of the clean ways to obtain electricity, which is why it is recognized in the world as an important factor for the future of our planet. Wind is a renewable energy source, which means that, unlike fossil fuels, for example, it will not be consumed, and it does not release combustion gases during electricity generation that would increase the greenhouse effect on our planet and thus aggravate global warming.
