ABB booked a $100 million order in Iraq in the fourth quarter of 2015 to deliver a substation for a 3,000 MW gas-fired power plant.
The development will assist Iraq re-generate its power infrastructure in the wake of conflicts which had destroyed much of the country’s capacity.
ABB’s Power Grids division will design, engineer and commission the substation for customer Mass Global Holding, the Swiss company said in a statement on Thursday.
In 2014, private company Mass Global announced it and Iraqi banks would finance a $3bn, 3,000 MW gas-fired power plant being built by Turkey‘s Enka Insaat in the Iraqi city of Bismayah.
