Oman: integrated power solution

ABB is supplying a complete integrated power solution, including process-critical rectifiers, rectifier control systems and current sensors, for the biggest aluminium potline ever built. The 360-pot Sohar aluminium plant in Oman will have a production capacity of 360,000tns and be the biggest aluminium potline in the world when it goes onstream in March 2008. Sohar is a joint venture between industry and regional companies Oman Oil Co., ADWEA (Abu Dhabi Electricity and Water) and Alcan. ABB’s scope of supply includes five giant 113kA /1650VDC rectifier transformers, five AC 800PEC high-speed control and protection units for the rectifiers, a level-2 SCADA (supervisory control and data acquisition) system for the rectifier station and gas insulated substation, and ABB’s recently launched fiber-optic current sensors.
