ABB has won orders worth US$ 32 million to supply five new transformer substations and build overhead transmission lines to serve 14 wind farms with a generation capacity of about 300MW. The orders were placed in the fourth quarter of 2010 by Renova Energia SA, a Brazilian power company.

ABB will design, engineer, supply, construct and commission the substations, and also train customer operators and maintenance staff. The delivery includes five turnkey 34.5/69 kV (kilovolt) substations including 12 step-up power transformers rated at 33 MVA (mega volt ampere), air and gas-insulated switchgear, medium-voltage reclosers and distribution transformers. ABB will also supply and install 60 km of 69 kV overhead transmission lines to connect a 290 MW (megawatt) wind power plant to the national electricity grid that is currently under construction in the northeastern state of Bahia. The project is scheduled for completion in 2012.
