ABB to deliver 20 substations to Iraq
ABB has won orders from the Ministry of Electricity in Iraq to deliver five fixed and 15 mobile 132 kV substations that will help strengthen the power grid and provide electricity in central Iraq, according to the company’s press release.
As part of the projects, ABB will deliver key products including power transformers, capacitor banks and gas- and air-insulated switchgear, as well as advanced automation, protection and telecommunication systems for control and monitoring of substation assets.
The 15 mobile substations will enable fast electrification in some of the most-needy areas.
The substation projects are supported by Swedish government financing.
