ABB strikes US$7 million deal to improve grid reliability in Oman

ABB has won a new contract worth US$7mn from the Mazoon Electricity Company to improve grid reliability in Oman

The Swiss engineering conglomerate is set to deliver a range of components including a Network Manager SCADA system and a number of RTUs to enhance the access and quality of electricity in Oman.

?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,? said Saeed Fahim, Country Manager for ABB in Oman.

?We are pleased to be able to work with Mazoon again on this project after a successful cooperation on phase I.?

ABB has to provide 90 outdoor remote terminal unit stations (RTUs) for Mazoon, one of Oman?s main electricity distribution companies.

In its first stage the global power and automation technology company has set up a new Network Manager SCADA system at the main control centre to combine existing 33/11kV feeders and equipment in all grid substations and indoor primary stations.

The ABB Group operates in around 100 countries and employs around 145,000 people.
