ABB wins Qatar substation contract

Power and automation technology group ABB has won an order to supply two new substations to Ezdan Real Estate, a property developer in Qatar.

One 132/11kV substation will supply power to two new shopping centres, the Al Gharaffa and Gulf malls that are being built in Doha, to serve the emirate’s fast-growing retail market.

The second 66/11kV substation, Ezdan-5, will serve a new residential area.

The fast-track project is scheduled to be completed in around 14 months.
