ABB has won an order worth around US$ 55 million to supply three new substations and transmission infrastructure for the Brazilian utility Eólicas do Sul. ABB will design, supply, install and commission the substations in the southern state of Rio Grande do Sul, bordering Uruguay.

The project scope includes two turnkey 34.5/138 kilovolt (kV) substations, one 138/500 kV substation, step-up power transformers and air- and gas-insulated switchgear. ABB will also supply supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) and telecommunication systems as well as IEC 61850 compliant substation automation, control and protection equipment. Step-up transformers will increase the voltage of wind-generated power for integration into the transmission grid. ABB will also supply and install two 138 kV overhead transmission lines to connect a new 400 MW wind power plant to the national electricity grid. The project is scheduled for completion by 2014.
