Alstom Grid Canada was established in 1964 and is a subsidiary of Alstom, a fortune 500 company that employs 100,000 people in 100 counties around the world. They manufacture a complete range of HV electrical equipment for transmission and distribution networks, including: high voltage switchgear, transformers, packages and turnkey systems, flexible alternative current transmission systems and power quality systems, decentralized and renewable energy supply, automation, protection and control systems, industrial metering, energy management and trading systems.

Alstom selected Power Systems & Controls to provide 250kVA Automatic Voltage Regulators to support their SaskPower Swift Current SVS project. The Swift Current Station is located within the Municipality of Swift Current in southwest Saskatchewan, Canada. Our AVR systems will be utilized in support of the installation of their Static Var Systems (SVS) connected at 128kV (-40/+150MVars).

A global sourcing search was done by Alstom Grid Canada to find the correct supplier, and it was determined that PS&C was one of the few in the world that could meet their stringent guidelines and requirements. This is PS&C’s first opportunity to work with Alstom Grid Canada and we look forward to supporting their operations in the future.
