Arctic Directory: ABB wins $60M order from Saudi Electricity

ABB said Aug. 10 that it has won orders worth $60 million from Saudi Electricity Co., Saudi Arabia’s national power transmission and distribution utility, to improve the power efficiency of 28 distribution substations. ABB is responsible for the design, engineering, supply, installation and commissioning of the projects, which are expected to be completed by 2010. ABB technologies will improve the power factor, which is a measure of how efficiently power is being used. “These solutions will enable the substations to operate more efficiently thereby increasing the availability of electricity and improving power quality,” said Peter Leupp, head of ABB’s Power System division. ABB is a leader in power and automation technologies that enable utility and industry customers to improve performance while lowering environmental impact.
