ABB to Supply MNS Low Voltage Switchgear to Upgrade a Production Plant of Yara

ABB announced that it will supply MNS low voltage switchgear to upgrade a production plant of Yara. The MNS low voltage switchgear would cover a distance of more than a kilometer if stood end to end. ABB has booked first orders under the frame agreement in the first quarter of 2015. Communications protocols are embedded within the switchgear optimizing electrical distribution performance and condition based monitoring while providing detailed process and electrical information to plant operators in real time. The switchgear will increase electrical safety and support the reliable distribution of power, improved control and more efficient operation of a plant with more than 6,000 electric motors. ABB has an existing agreement to supply motors and drives to Yara. This ABB delivery supports another program Yara has initiated to increase production of fertilizer at the facility in Porsgrunn with 50,000 tons and production of calcium nitrate rising to 200,000 tons per annum. The project will take up to seven years to complete, with a total investment of $270 million. The low voltage power distribution will be designed and manufactured for Yara's specific requirements and will be supplied from ABB's low voltage systems unit based in Skien, Norway. Reliability, availability, ease of maintenance and safety are important criteria for ABB's customers for their plant assets.
