AREVA’s Transmission and Distribution division (T&D) has won a major order worth close to €90M to supply a 400/132-kV Gas-insulated Substation (GIS) for TRANSCO, a subsidiary of Abu Dhabi Water & Electricity Authority. AREVA T&D will deliver a 400/132-kV GIS substation, which will strengthen power supply for the fast-growing Northern Emirates region. It will be located in Ajman, where population is expected to jump from 250,000 in 2010 to 2.2 million in 2030, according to estimates from the UAE Ministry of Economy.
The substation solution also includes the delivery of four power transformers, four shunt reactors, a digital control system and a telecommunications system along with protection relays.
The project is scheduled to be completed by 2012.
