  • a considered approach to demolition/removal of redundant substation assets
  • carefully planned site remediation and temporary/permanent service provision
  • an optimized civil and GIS building solution

Renewable Generation

For renewable generation, substations that meet the demands of tomorrow

We support our customers in the creation of stronger, smarter and greener grids that are adapted to meet the changing needs of an evolving power landscape.

For power and water systems, Linxon solutions enhance the capacity, reliability and availability of transmission and distribution networks with proven substation designs and innovative grid technologies. Linxon solutions facilitate the integration and interconnection of cleaner energy supplies, and help to maintain grid reliability and secure power supplies. We are focused on grid stability, reliability and code compliance.

We challenge ourselves to deliver technical solutions that help our renewable energy customers meet their commitments. We have also implemented innovative delivery solution for both civil and demolition works by minimizing the use of nonsustainable materials.


For rail substation applications and mass transit transmission

Linxon substations for rail ensure reliable power delivery to the line and vehicles so main line trains, metros and mass transit networks stay on track. Optimized rail electrification solutions ensure reliable supplies of AC and DC power are available to support high performance and efficiency.

We design, construct, test and commission complete traction power supply systems for both long distance rail and mass transit applications.

We specialize in highvoltage, traction and auxiliary power for:

  • light/metro lines
  • high-speed lines
  • main lines and freight lines

We provide design, engineering, surveying, as well as grid compliance and approvals:

  • EMC, earthing & bonding
  • RAMS
  • stray currents
  • braking energy recovery solutions
  • power quality solutions

Linxon provides not only complete endtoend solutions, but also extended support during initial operation.
