ABB wins $17 million substation order in the U.S.

2004-08-12 - Gas-isulated switchgear will help meet increased energy demand

Zurich, Switzerland, August 12, 2003 - ABB, the leading power and automation technology group, today said it has won a $17 million order to supply a turnkey indoor substation for City of Glendale Water & Power utility in California to help it meet increased energy demand.

ABB said it won the contract to upgrade the Kellogg-Airway switchyard because of the reliability and safety of ABB equipment, as well as the compact size of its technology in an area where space is at a premium.

The project includes engineering, procurement, construction and commissioning of the substation and associated equipment. The main component is a 69kV gas-insulated switchgear (GIS).

ABB developed GIS in the 1960s and has completed some 15,000 GIS projects worldwide. GIS has a smaller footprint, shorter delivery time, and lower operating and maintenance costs than air-insulated applications.

GIS is one of several proven technologies developed by ABB and is part of a comprehensive portfolio of transmission and distribution products and solutions designed to enhance grid reliability.

ABB (www.abb.com) is a leader in power and automation technologies that enable utility and industry customers to improve performance while lowering environmental impact. The ABB Group of companies operates in around 100 countries and employs about 105,000 people.
