Customer Success Story

Hybrid STATCOM for Borken substation, Germany

The first hybrid static synchronous compensator for dynamic voltage stabilisation in Germany


Germany’s energy transition roadmap aims for a renewable energy target of at least 80% by 2050. This is making the grid weaker due to the voltage fluctuations caused by intermittent renewable generation.

Hitachi Energy's solution

Installation of a Hybrid SVC Light® STATCOM rated +400/-250 Mvar at the Borken substation in Hessen, located in Central Germany.


The Hybrid STATCOM will support and stabilize the grid, enabling wind energy from north Germany to be transported to the heavy load centers in the south.
