ABB to deploy China-made 3-phase reactor in Singapore
ABB's first locally designed and manufactured 3-phase shunt reactor is now rolling off the production line of ABB Chongqing Transformer Co. Ltd.
The 3-phase 100Mvar/230kV shunt reactor will be deployed in the Kallang Bahru substation of Singapore's power grid, a project managed by SP PowerGrid Ltd.
It has already succeeded in tests to withstand lightning impulse, separate source power frequency and induced over voltage. In addition, ABB Chongqing Transformer Co. Ltd. will also deliver a 50Mvar shunt reactor to improve the reliability of power supply in Singapore.
According to ABB, the project is a further evidence of ABB's successful technology transfer and local R&D in China, greatly improving the competitiveness of "Chinese Manufacturing."
Bernd Muehe, Head of ABB Power Products Division, North Asia Region and China, said, "The successful commission of the 3-phase shunt reactor is a result of the remarkable improvement in the R&D and production strength of ABB's local companies in China. It demonstrates our strong commitment to providing efficient and reliable power equipment to customers in both domestic and overseas markets."
