ABB has won orders worth $19 million from SP PowerAssets in Singapore for substations that will help to strengthen the electricity transmission and distribution network. The project, scheduled for completion in 2010, includes the design, supply, installation and commissioning of two 66-kV gas insulated switchgear (GIS) substations, as well as the supporting ancillary equipment.
“These GIS substations, with their compact footprint, are ideally suited to locations where space is at a premium, and will help to secure and strengthen the reliability of the grid,” said Claudio Facchin, global head of ABB’s substation business, a part of the company’s Power Systems division.
SP PowerAssets owns the electricity transmission and distribution networks in Singapore. It is a member of the Singapore Power Group, a leading energy utility group in the Asia Pacific region.
