Petrofac orders ABB systems for ASAB project

Power and automation technology group ABB has won orders worth a total of $24m (£16m) from oil and gas facilities service provider Petrofac to design and deliver power infrastructure, systems and automation equipment for the ASAB Full Field Development Project in Abu Dhabi.

ABB will design and supply a host of power equipment, including air-insulated medium-voltage switchgear and power transformers.

The scope of supply also includes space-saving, environmentally friendly MNS 3.0-type low-voltage switchgear, which uses Alu-zinc coated materials in all the frames and subdivisions to reduce chemicals used in the coating process.

The delivery also includes a substation monitoring and control system and integrated motor-control system, which covers nine substations and one central control building.
