ABB wins $26 million order to power refinery in Greece

ABB has won an order worth $26 million from Hellenic Petroleum SA to provide an integrated power and automation system for the upgrade of Hellenic Petroleum’s Elefsina refinery, west of Athens. The environmentally friendly refinery will manufacture products in accordance with best in class technology and global standards to minimize environmental impact. The order was booked in the third quarter.

ABB will design, supply, install and commission the electrical and automation system to power the refinery. The turnkey electrical solution aims to strengthen the reliability and quality of power supply to the refinery, while improving energy efficiency and reducing overall electricity consumption and costs. The project is expected to be completed by 2010.

ABB will supply medium-voltage equipment including the latest ZX2 gas-insulated switchgear and ZS1 Unigear air-insulated switchgear. ABB will also install intelligent low-voltage switchgear (MNSiS) as well as a fully automated power management and load shedding system based on the company’s System 800xA automation platform and IEC 61850 compatible communication networks. Integrating the electrical and automation system on the common 800xA platform provides additional benefits including reduced maintenance, engineering and overall lifecycle costs.
