ABB says it has received an order worth approximately $75 million from Iraq's Ministry of Electricity to extend an existing transmission substation in the southern part of the country.

The 400/132 kV Amara substation will connect to the grid a new 500 MW gas-based power plant and smaller power stations that are presently under construction.

As part of the turnkey contract, ABB is responsible for the project management, design, engineering, supply, installation and commissioning of the substation. The project is scheduled for completion by 2013.

Key product supplies include air-insulated switchgear, transformers, shunt reactors and cables. ABB will also supply control and protection systems compliant with the IEC 61850 open communications standard, as well as associated telecommunication equipment.
