REIVAX NORTH AMERICA AWARDED FRAME AGREEMENT WITH MANITOBA HYDRO
Montreal (April 9, 2021) – REIVAX NORTH AMERICA is pleased to welcome Manitoba Hydro as its newest customer. On March 15th of 2021, Reivax signed an agreement with Manitoba Hydro to supply up to seventy (70) static excitation systems over a ten (10) year period.
The agreement includes some of the largest hydro stations in North America and the unique remote locations of the most northern plants imposes additional challenges. As such, the excitation systems are required to operate during extreme variations in system voltage, frequency and harmonic distortion in case of a filter bank failure in the Owner’s HVDC converter station.
Reivax RTX Power static excitation system provides very fast response and the fully redundant solution provides the highest possible equipment reliability. The very intuitive HMI interface will also simplify maintenance and regulatory testing for Manitoba Hydro.
“Manitoba Hydro is a top tier Canadian utility and Reivax North America is honored to have been selected for this contract. Both companies have a very strong engineering background and we are certain this aspect will yield mutually beneficial results”, said Mike Wallin, CEO and President of REIVAX NORTH AMERICA
