Efacec Protection and Control Systems installed in Democratic Republic of the Congo


Efacec is expanding its references in African countries; recently we have concluded supply of control and protection systems for Democratic Republic of the Congo. Contracts in this region of Africa result from the cooperation with our Spanish business partner AEE Power (an international EPC Contractor and Power Developer specialized in the energy industry).

Several transmission and distribution substations of national electricity company SNEL are equipped now with the systems based on CLP 500SAS platform, integrating station servers UC 500E, digital control units BCU 500, protection relays from Efacec (Series 420 and 220), and also from third parties. The communications at the substation level are implemented over IEC 61850 standard.

Efacec’s CLP 500SAS platform enables multiple field-proven system architectures concerning protection and control integration, multi-vendor integration, communication network architectures, use of hardwired or GOOSE logic and redundancy options, together with standard function implementations and database, HMI or cabinet designs. With CLP 500SAS customers benefit in full confidence from the power and flexibility of advanced substation automation, protection and control together with straightforward engineering and management throughout the system lifecycle.
