Can you find the switching system?

SAG in Budapest shows how to integrate a 5-storey transformer station into the cityscape without it being noticed.


The job commissioned by the energy provider, Elektromos Müvek (ELMÜ), to date the largest job taken on by SAG Hungaria, speaks for itself: A 120/10kV switching system was to be erected in the middle of a park in the centre of Budapest – as compact as possible and without detracting from the cityscape. In response, SAG built the core of the 5-storey transformer station underground. This necessitated the highest level of precision and sophisticated technology. At the end of 2007 the SAG subsidiary transferred the ready-to-use system to its partner – Hungary's first underground system.
