Switzerland : ABB to design and deliver 420 kV GIS for SAUDI water desalination plant.

Saline Water Conversion Corporation (SWCC), Saudi Arabia's government agency responsible for desalinating sea water, has awarded a contract to Swiss power group ABB for a desalination project.

Under the contract, ABB will design and deliver 420 kilovolt (kV) high voltage gas insulated switchgear (GIS) for a new desalination facility in the Gulf Kingdom. The firm will moreover supply support for the grid integration of a new 2.5 gigawatts (GW) power generation plant being built up by SWCC.

Scheduled for completion in June 2014, the desalination plant, which will have a capacity to produce 550,000 cubic meters of desalinated water per day, is situated in Yanbu Industrial City, a major port on the Red Sea in the Al Madinah province.
