ABB has recently signed a five-year agreement with a five-year extension option worth up to $200 million to deliver extra -high-voltage power transformers to the Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA) in the United States.
‘This agreement confirms our position as the supplier of choice and a reliable long-term partner,’ said Peter Smits, head of ABB’s Power Technologies division. ‘The transformers will be produced within our global network of focused factories, which ensures fast delivery.’
According to the terms of the contract, ABB will deliver extra-high-voltage power transformers of up to 765 Kilovolt (kV). They will be designed with the common ABB TrafoStar transformer concept and built in facilities in Canada, Germany and Spain.
ABB will also supply a full range of products and services, including technical support, for hauling and installing the units. The latest order follows a power transformer agreement in 1999 for ratings of up to 230 Kv.
