ABB (www.abb.com), a power and automation technology group, was awarded a contract to supply automation and safety systems, electrical equipment and related services for a new gas compression station that will serve the natural gas pipeline that runs across northern Turkey. The contract was awarded by Teknotes (http://eng.teknotes.net), the Turkish EPC subcontractor of engineering and construction firm Tecnicas Reunidas (http://www.tecnicasreunidas.es/es/). The end customer is Botas, Turkey's state-owned petroleum pipeline corporation.

The new Erzincan Gas Compressor Station will be located in eastern Turkey and will consist of four turbine/compressor units with three units in operation and one unit spare. The flow rate of the pipeline varies between 1.6 to 2 million standard cubic meters per hour; ABB’s delivery will help to increase the overall transportation capacity of the pipeline, which supplies energy to a majority of Turkey’s residents.

ABB’s scope of supply includes an integrated 800xA automation system to control the compressor station and other processes, 800xA High Integrity safety system for emergency shut down, instrumentation, as well as transformers, medium and low voltage panels, and other electrical equipment. ABB will also provide all site control and engineering documentation, and related installation services.
