GE Energy To Supply High-Voltage Substation For The World’s Largest Single Line Cement Plant


ATLANTA, GA - December 7, 2006 :- GE Energy has signed a contract with Holcim (US) Inc. to design, supply and construct a fully-operational substation in Bloomsdale, Mo. The new substation will provide distributed power for the world’s largest single line cement plant.

The 160 MVA substation will be available for service by the end of 2007. Once fully operational, the substation will receive power at 345 kV and will be transformed to 13.8 kV for distribution power.

The new substation will include two identical 80 MVA line-ups at 13.8 kV for reliability. Either line will be able to run the full plant operations.

“GE Energy’s experience, reputation and short turn-around time made our EPC substation package attractive to Holcim,” said Dan Heintzelman, president of GE Energy’s services business. “We are pleased to be providing a substation for the world’s largest single line cement plant.”

Holcim (US) Inc. is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Holcim Ltd. and is one of the largest suppliers of portland and blended cements and related mineral components in the United States.
