ABB has announced that it has received orders worth around US $120 million from Saudi Electricity Company (SEC) that will see the firm supply transformers to help boost grid capacity. Under the deal, the power firm will design, manufacture, supply and install transformers rated at 67- and 100- megavolt ampere (MVA), at locations across the country.
“Saudi Arabia remains a key market for ABB and we are delighted to continue supporting the country in its efforts to strengthen its power infrastructure. ABB transformers are designed to maximise availability while ensuring reliability and optimising efficiency.

ABB says that its transformers are capable of handling the thermal and mechanical stresses caused by severe climatic conditions, high altitudes, cyclical loads and short circuit forces.
