ABB, the leading power and automation technology group, has won orders worth over $50 million to build transmission substations in Brazil. The orders were booked in the first quarter.

ABB will design, supply, install and commission two new 230/69 kV (kilovolt) substations at Miramar and Tucurui and a 230/138 kV substation at Nobres for Eletrobras Eletronorte in the North of the country.

ABB will also construct a new 230/138 kV substation at Umuarama and extend the existing substation Cascavel Oeste for Costa Oeste Transmissora De Energia S.A., a special purpose company of Copel Transmissao and Eletrobras Eletrosul, utilities serving Southern Brazil.

In another two projects awarded by Eletrobras CHESF, ABB will install a new 230/69 kV substation (Teresina III) and extend other existing 230 kV and 500 kV substations in North East Brazil.

Key product supplies for the projects will include air and gas-insulated switchgear, high-voltage transformers, medium-voltage switchgear, auxiliary systems and cables. ABB will also supply the SCADA (supervisory control and data acquisition) system and the automation, control and protection equipment. The substations will also be equipped with the IEC 61850 compliant open communication system to enable remote monitoring and control of power assets located at multiple sites. The projects are scheduled for completion by 2013.

“These new substations and extensions will increase capacity and strengthen the country’s transmission and distribution infrastructure to help meet growing electricity demand from residential, industrial and commercial consumers,” said Oleg Aleinikov, head of ABB’s Substations business, a part of the company’s Power Systems division.

Brazil’s economy continues to grow steadily. At the same time population is expected to increase by about 10 per cent to 220 million by 2020. These trends continue to drive the demand for electricity with generation capacity expected to increase by more than 35 per cent to approximately 144 gigawatts by 2020. In addition, the country will require substantial investment in transmission and distribution, both for new facilities and refurbishment of existing infrastructure.

ABB is the world’s leading supplier of turnkey air-insulated, gas-insulated and hybrid substations with voltage levels up to 1,100 kV. These substations facilitate the efficient and reliable transmission and distribution of electricity with minimum environmental impact, serving utility, industry and commercial customers as well as sectors like railways, urban transportation and renewables.

ABB (abb.com) is a leader in power and automation technologies that enable utility and industry customers to improve their performance while lowering environmental impact. The ABB Group of companies operates in around 100 countries and employs about 145,000 people.
