ABB technology to boost power quality in Singapore

2016-06-08 - ABB shunt reactors to support transmission capacity and help SP PowerAssets to enhance power infrastructure development across the country.

ABB has won an order from Singapore Power (SP) PowerAssets to supply three 400-kilovolt (kV) shunt reactors and two 66 kV tertiary shunt reactors. This equipment will be installed in three SP PowerAssets substations. SP PowerAssets is part of Singapore Power (SP) Group, one of the largest corporations in Singapore and a leading energy utility group in the Asia Pacific region.

The equipment will support SP PowerAssets in providing capacitive reactive power compensation to transmission and distribution lines and cable systems, thus boosting transmission and enhancing grid reliability. This enhanced power infrastructure will support the economic development of the country, home to over a million industrial, commercial and residential users.

The contract scope includes supply, installation, testing and commissioning of the shunt reactors, ancillary equipment, power cable and accessories. The project is scheduled for commissioning in 2019.

“We are pleased to support SP PowerAssets in increasing the energy efficiency of its power transmission through our advanced shunt reactor technology which help to improve voltage stability and power quality,” said Giuseppe Petrelli, marketing and sales manager for ABB’s Transformers business, a part of the company’s Power Grids division. “With our strong local presence and proven track record, we are committed to continue serving our customers in vital power infrastructure development projects around the world.”

Shunt reactors are the most compact and cost-efficient way to compensate for capacitive reactive power generation in long high-voltage power transmission cable systems. They help stabilize voltage during load variations in alternating current systems and increase the active or useful power transmitted.

The high quality of ABB products provides an outstanding capacity to withstand short circuits and harmonics, as well as fast and large load fluctuations. Being the largest supplier of high-voltage shunt reactors in the world, ABB has delivered more than 2,500 shunt reactors to 70 countries worldwide since 1960.
