Omani electricity distribution firm Mazoon Electricity Company has awarded ABB a US $7 million contract to deliver a range of components aimed at boosting the availability and quality of electricity available on the country’s grid.
Under the deal, ABB will provide 90 outdoor remote terminal unit stations (RTUs) on a turnkey basis/ This includes interfaces for 33/11 kV substations and the supervisory control and data acquisition system (SCADA) to control and monitor electricity supplies.
“This project is another step in Mazoon’s development of its infrastructure in order to improve transparency on its network, which ultimately helps the company provide a cleaner, more reliable and smarter service to its customers. We are pleased to be able to work with Mazoon again on this project after a successful cooperation on phase 1,” said ABB Oman country manager, Saeed Fahim.
Phase 1 of the project saw ABB install a brand new Network Manager SCADA system at the main control center – helping integrate existing 33/11kV feeders and equipment in all grid substations.
