ABB Power - ffwd newsletter

ABB has published a new edition of its ffwd newsletter for customers of its Power Grids business in the UK, including updates on major projects, new generation technology and power service.

Project updates include ABB’s work to deliver the UK’s first fully integrated digital substation in the FITNESS project, a major upgrade for SP Energy Networks’ Kilmarnock South substation and challenges posed by our Victorian ancestors when delivering a new substation in Kensal Green, London.

Technology news includes ABB’s eco-efficient alternative to SF6 insulating gas for switchgear, an explanation of the growing role of energy storage to support grid frequency and how converter transformers in China will set a new 10 GW capacity world record for 800 kV transmission.

ffwd also covers a UK technology first at Vattenfall’s Pen y Cymoedd wind energy project, where the operator is taking site security to the next level by adopting wireless communication for security cameras.

Projects and services that support ongoing operations are also covered. These include a story on replacement of generator circuit breakers at EDF Energy’s Heysham 2 nuclear power station and how ABB remanufactured a failed transformer to help Lynemouth Power return to full capacity within 30 weeks.
