ABB will supply medium-voltage equipment including the latest ZX2 gas-insulated switchgear and ZS1 Unigear air-insulated switchgear. ABB will also install intelligent low-voltage switchgear (MNSiS) as well as a fully automated power management and load shedding system based on the company’s System 800xA automation platform and IEC 61850 compatible communication networks. Integrating the electrical and automation system on the common 800xA platform provides additional benefits including reduced maintenance, engineering and overall lifecycle costs.

“This versatile solution is a good example of how ABB´s power and automation technologies combine to deliver integrated industry solutions to optimize operational costs, enhance plant performance and improve energy efficiency,” said Franz-Josef Mengede, head of the global Power Generation business, a part of ABB’s Power Systems division.
