- COP $ 20 billion invested, located on Avenida Centenario (Calle 17) between Carreras 78 and 79.
- Initial 80 MVA (million volt amperes) installed power, equivalent to the entire energy consumed by a municipality like Zipaquira.
- Two transformers in its first phase, two high-voltage circuits, and support equipment and technology for monitoring, safety and protection, all of which will be imported from various countries.
- Construction works expected to begin June 2020, upon approval of all other necessary procedures for this purpose.
- Will directly benefit more than 165,000 people, as it will improve the quality, reliability and operability of the energy service in the Modelia, Hayuelos, Castilla, Ciudad Salitre and Industrial Zone sectors.
- Will provides energy to infrastructure expansion projects that are being developed in this area of the city, all of which involve growth in energy demand. The “Bavaria Triangle” stands out, where more than 3,000 homes will be built, as well as commercial areas, office spaces, communal equipment and parks.
- Will also feed the "Ciudadela La Felicidad" project, made up of 54 blocks and where more than 20 residential complexes and nearly 5,000 new homes have already been delivered.
- Will be fully automated and telecontrolled, allowing for a better response operation during contingency. This is known as “digital substation”, a technology that Enel-Codensa pioneers in Colombia and of which the Terminal substation will be the second in the country to implement, after the Portugal substation located at the Salitre WWTP.
The Terminal Substation also helps the surrounding environment. The licensing process guarantees compliance with the technical and environmental regulations in force during the construction and operation phases.
- The planning, design and studies phase began in the third quarter of 2013.
- The plot was acquired in 2015.
- UPME approved the construction of the substation in March 2016.
- The Environmental Impact Study began in 2015.
- The Environmental License and Concept application was processed in the third quarter of 2018.
- The Implementation Plan application was carried out in the fourth quarter of 2018.
- Resolution No. 00500 of the Environment District Secretariat of February 13, 2019 granted the environmental license for the project.
- Construction of the Terminal substation will begin around June 2020.
- Commissioning and operation of the Terminal Substation will be in 2021.
During the execution stage of the works, we at Enel-Codensa promote participation mechanisms to attend to requests, complaints, claims and suggestions from the community. Learn more here!
- Mobile Customer Advisory Center (CMAC): We have a mobile office available for permanent contact and appropriate responses.
- Enel-Codensa Operations Support Division: the area in charge of meeting the community's requirements related to the development of the project.
Learn here about the licenses required to develop the Terminal Substation project in a timely and adequate manner:
1. Environmental license
Granted through Resolution No. 00500 of February 13, 2020, its schedules and clarification document dated March 9, 2020.
2. Implementation plan
We are conducting the project implementation plan before the Planning Secretariat, to validate the environmental impact of the project, as well as the urban and mobility impacts in the area where it will be built.
3. Construction license
We will file an application for a construction license with the Urban Curatorship, upon approval the implementation plan.
The set of actions, activities and procedures that Enel-Codensa will carry out during the execution of the Terminal Substation project works. These actions seek to avoid, correct, mitigate or compensate for the environmental impacts that the project could potentially generate.
- Soil management.
- Machinery management.
- Construction material and excavation management.
- Appropriate management and disposal of solid and liquid waste.
- Chemical and dangerous substance management.
- Noise emission management.
- Electromagnetic field management.
- Landscape management.
- Fauna management.
- Substation plot pastures management.
- Information and community participation.
- Attention to requests.
- Neighborhood acts.
- Hiring of local labor.
- Archaeological management.
The implementation of these measures and their effectiveness is measured through the Project's Tracking and Monitoring Program (PDC).
