Powering Andorra's sustainable energy future
Navigating challenges, delivering solutions, making an impact - How we did it
FEDA required a sustainable solution that could guarantee the growth of the electricity supply of the Valls del Nord region (La Massana and Ordino) with proven power quality.
Additionally, they required the ability to allow for load reduction efficiently and securely at the Encamp Substation and optimize the distribution of electricity between the two valleys.
Overlaying these requirements, the substation not only had to enable FEDA to achieve its sustainability goals, but it was to be integrated into the natural mountainside surroundings – close to neighbors and ski resorts – with minimal impact on the environment and optimized total cost of ownership (TCO).
With tourism being a key driver of Andorra’s economy, all new projects are deeply analyzed in terms of their effects on the local environment. Noise and visual pollution were, therefore of significant concern that Hitachi Energy had to resolve.

A prime example of utilizing cutting-edge technologies, but foremost, it is the result of true collaboration of partners sharing a common vision and passion for a sustainable energy future for today’s generation and those to come.
