ABB assists water project

Twenty-seven ABB ACS 6000 medium voltage variable-speed drives with a total rated power of 198MW, along with input transformers and large AMC 1000 motors, were chosen for Phases I and II of the Ras Laffan common cooling water project. Phase one of the project is complete, comprising nine drives rated at 7050kW each. Design of Phase II is underway. The project is designed to provide vital cooling water drawn from the sea for the power plant, LNG trains and petrochemical facilities at Ras Laffan Industrial City. Phase I of the cooling water facility was commissioned in August 2003, and now pumps 308,000cum of water an hour, to cool six industrial sites. Phase II is scheduled for completion in 2008, and will pump an additional 525,000cum of cooling water to three more sites.
