ABB to power dual-mode water facility
06 March 2018
ABB has won an order from Keppel Seghers Pte to supply complete electrical, instrumentation, automation and control systems for Singapore’s fourth desalination plant, the Keppel Marina East Desalination Plant.
The Design-Build-Own-Operate (DBOO) project, initiated by PUB, Singapore’s national water agency, will produce approximately 30 million gallons of fresh drinking water a day, enough to fill about 55 Olympic-sized swimming pools, when it is completed by 2020.
ABB will design, engineer, manufacture, install, test and commission the complete plant electrification, instrumentation and water analyzers, automation and control system. The scope of supply includes 66kV gas-insulated switchgears, power and distribution transformers, medium- and low-voltage switchgears and drives, control system, remote terminal units, field instruments and analytical systems, AC and DC uninterruptible power supply, emergency diesel generator, bus duct and cabling system, local control cubicles and earthing system.
