ABB wins $75 million order to reinforce grid in Iraq

ABB has won an order worth around $75 million from the Ministry of Electricity of Iraq to extend an existing transmission substation in the Southern part of the country. The 400/132 kV (kilovolt) Amara substation will connect a new 500 MW gas-based power plant as well as smaller power stations, presently under construction, to the grid. Brice Koch, head of ABB’s Power Systems division, said, “The substation extension will enable the integration of additional power generation sources and boost power supply to the region. It will also help to improve grid reliability and power quality.” As part of the turnkey contract, the company is responsible for the project management, design, engineering, supply, installation and commissioning of the substation, including civil works. The project is scheduled for completion by 2013. The company is the world’s leading supplier of turnkey air-insulated, gas-insulated and hybrid substations with voltage levels up to 1,100 kV.
