High voltage potential released
CONCO is recognised as the largest high voltage substation construction company in the Southern hemisphere, with a capacity to construct substations from 11kV to 765kV. Our specialised engineers design, procure, construct and commission conventional outdoor substations (AIS), indoor cellular substations, gas-insulated substations (GIS) and 22kV-132kV mobile substation skids for open-cast mining. In addition, our Substations Business Unit has handled reticulation projects for developing suburban and industrial areas. These projects have taken the form of substations, mini-substations, medium-voltage cabling, street-pole lighting and other installations in the mining sector, industry and municipalities.
Turn the key; unlock the solution
Despite the necessarily complex design of our substations, CONCO produces flawless turnkey solutions; the mechanisms of engineering perfection for which our business is renowned. This is made possible as a result of strong project management, our own installation crews, our own design and testing systems and a large team of expert site managers.
Unbroken currents of productivity
Over the years, from green-field to brown-field sites, there is not a substation context CONCO has not encountered. More specifically, a function unique to our business is the upgrading of existing sites while keeping them energised. CONCO is also able to fit substations into very small footprints, based on the space that is available – and this, in line with IEC and SANS standards. Our design engineers are assisted in providing such solutions by our in-depth proficiency when it comes to utilising the latest technologies, including hybrid (compact) switchgear technology.
