Elecnor Hawkeye installed the first two utility SVC PLUS in the United States for Siemens.
Siemens was awarded the Project "DRSS Phase II" by the Long Island Power Authority (LIPA).
This second phase of the Dynamic Reactive Support System (DRSS) consists of two SVCs, located on Long Island, New York, USA, and serves the purpose of voltage stabilization and reactive support during summer peaks. Each SVC is rated -50 / +150 MVAr and is connected to 138kV.
These DRSS are capable of providing superior performance and offers LIPA an even higher operating range. Besides this, the very low electric losses as well as significant space savings compared to conventional technology were some of the benefits.
