Modernization of the power supply system of several food industry enterprises in the Kherson region

02 Aug 2020

S-Engineering specialists completed a set of works to modernize the power supply system of several food industry enterprises in the Kherson region. These are the Kakhovka oil-extracting plant “JSC Cargill” **, the plant for the production of sunflower oil Chumak ***, the cannery Chumak, the enterprise Helios.

For the modernization of the 35 / 10kV transformer substation, which supplies power to these enterprises, Simoprime devices were manufactured using Siemens technology. S-Engineering is the only Siemens licensee in Ukraine with the status of a Technology partner. The license allows to carry out a full cycle of production of medium voltage switchgears (switchgear) using Simoprime technology.

Due to the significant production capacity, technical base, and qualifications of the S-Engineering plant specialists, Simoprime switchgears are manufactured with a maximum depth of production. All international requirements for the production of metal structures and the manufacture of these devices are observed. The quality assurance system is certified by ISO 9001.

Thus, the main goal of the customer was achieved – the re-equipment of the power supply system: replacement of morally and physically obsolete equipment and increasing its reliability and safety class. Simoprime switchgear is energy-efficient and makes it possible to replace outdated equipment with minimal costs.

The Simoprime switchgear protection system was integrated into the general relay protection system of the transformer substation. Besides, S-Engineering specialists have developed and implemented a dispatching system that allows you to remotely control the operation of the power supply system of these enterprises.

** The processing capacity of the Kakhovsky oil extraction plant “JSC Cargill” is more than 500 thousand tons of sunflower seeds per year (1.4 thousand tons per day).

*** Chumak ( is a Ukrainian company producing tomato paste, cold sauces (ketchup, mayonnaise), and seasonal preservation. The company was founded in Ukraine in 1993 by Swedish entrepreneurs. In 1998 the company acquired two more factories in Kakhovka, Kherson region for the production of Chumak sunflower oil.
