ABB Substation to Enhance New York Power GridSource: www.gulfoilandgas.com 3/16/2017, Location: North America
ABB has won an order from Bechtel Infrastructure and Power to provide a turnkey substation solution. The substation will integrate electricity generated by the Cricket Valley Energy Station, a new combined cycle natural gas-fueled power plant located in Dover. It will add more than 1,100 megawatts (MW) of power and enhance the reliability of the New York transmission grid, benefitting about a million homes in the region.
The 345 kilovolt (kV) gas insulated switchgear (GIS) substation will be built with the highest levels of reliability and safety. ABB’s GIS technology will enhance operational reliability, efficiency and safety while minimizing substation footprint and maintenance requirements. This is the second such substation ABB is providing for Bechtel - the first being the 345kV GIS substation for the Hummel Energy Center to be energized later this year.
“This advanced GIS substation will boost transmission capacity, improve efficiency and enhance power reliability for millions of New Yorker consumers”, said Patrick Fragman, Managing Director of ABB’s Grid Integration business, a part of the company’s Power Grids division. “ABB’s world leading, robust and compact gas insulated switchgear provides differentiated customer value, a key focus area of our Next Level strategy.”
