Red Eléctrica has commissioned the Tábara substation and the line, both 400 kilovolts (kV), which connects it to the Aparecida-Tordesillas axis. With an investment of around 11 million euros, it’s located in the municipality of Moreruela de Tábara, in the province of Zamora, and was built next to the substation of the high speed train.

The two facilities form part of the transmission grid that provides electricity to the high speed train axis that will connect Madrid and Galicia, specifically in the stretch from Olmedo (Valladolid) and Orense, which is powered by four 400 kV substations—the one mentioned earlier in Olmedo, and those in Valdecarretas, Tábara and Arbillera, in Zamora—as well as a 220 kV network in Conso (Orense). The entire infrastructure is expected to be finished in 2018.

Although the Tábara substation was fundamentally built to provide service to the high speed train, it was designed in a way that allows for future developments of the transmission grid in the environment.
