Major tidal turbine contract for ABB

ABB has secured an order in excess of £2 million for the engineering, supply, installation and commissioning of an electrical generating system for two tidal turbines, rated at 2.4MW.

The first full-scale Neptune tidal stream device is the design of Edinburgh's Aquamarine Power. The Neptune demonstration design is on schedule for delivery in 2010 at the UK tidal test centre, known as the European Marine Energy Centre (EMEC), located in Orkney, as a precursor to commercial deployment.

Among ABB's scope of supply are two industrial drives, two 1.6MVA Midel filled transformers, two 1.2MW induction generators, an 11kV switchboard and two pitch control and supervisory controllers. In addition ABB is responsible for the grid connection engineering, interface engineering, nacelle electrical engineering and containerisation of all the equipment. The system will include a custom-designed control system, which will allow remote monitoring, fault prevention and continuous grid quality power output.
