ABB Wins 132 KV Substations Contracts from Iraq

ABB has bagged orders from the Ministry of Electricity in Iraq to deliver 5 fixed and 15 mobile 132 kilovolt substations, aiming to help strengthen the power grid and provide electricity in central Iraq.

The move has come as the government of Iraq is rebuilding the country and investing in its grid as part of its ambitious plan to develop its power infrastructure to meet electricity needs.

Additionally, the substation projects are supported by the Swedish government financing.

As per the deal, ABB will also deliver key products like gas- and air-insulated switchgear, power transformers and capacitor banks to improve power quality and advanced IEC 61850-based automation, protection and telecommunication systems for control and monitoring of substation assets.

Besides, the fifteen mobile substations will enable fast electrification in some of the most-needy areas.

Commenting on the development, Patrick Fragman, Head of ABB’s Grid Integration business, a part of the company’s Power Grids division said, “The substations will help to improve the electricity supply by expanding capacity and strengthening Iraq’s power infrastructure.”

“These projects add to our extensive installed base in the region and support our focus on growing markets, reinforcing ABB’s position as a partner of choice in enabling a stronger, smarter and greener grid,” Fragman added.

The company is among the leading suppliers of air-insulated, gas-insulated and hybrid substations with voltage levels up to 1,100 kV.
