Welcome to the ECN forum.

Interesting photo's from Poland.

I got a couple of pics from New Zealand here from 110 and 220 kV lines near Marsden point, near Whangarei.
North Island, New Zealand.

Kind regards

Raymond

RODALCO interesting photos. Would you mind if I put them to my site album?? I'm sure some people in Poland would see it. I'll place link to you or something like that if you want...

Do you know from what web site is this picture ? http://www.elektroinstalacje.info/photogallery.php?photo_id=121

Most of the pictures look really neat and modern... but I loved this one: http://www.elektroinstalacje.info/photogallery.php?photo_id=111

Do you have any idea what kind of machine that was?

No problem, You can use those photo's on your site.

I will make some more while on the road.

Also i will take some photo's from within the substations when i'm working there.

Standard voltages in New Zealand are:
All at 50 Hz
220 kV,
110 kV,
66 kV,
50 kV,
33 kV,
25 kV, (Railways)
22 kV,
11 kV,
6.6 kV
3.3 kV
400 / 230 Volts supply
110 / 63½ Volts AC and DC in substations for metering and protection.

Then a 600 kV DC link is between the North and the South Island.

A 400 kV line is in the process of being built to supply Auckland

Ok, thanks.
I can't wait to see photos of the substation.

In Poland we have several voltage levels

low : 230V (1- phase) or 400V (3-phase)
average : 6kV, 10kV, 15kV, 20kV
high: 110kV, 220kV and 400kV
There is one 750kV connect with Ukraina but inactive. Frequency 50Hz.

And one cable connection HVDC 450kV with Sweden.
