Global technology company ABB has secured an order from Bechtel Infrastructure and Power to provide a turnkey substation solution.

The substation would add 1,100MW of power and integrate electricity generated by the Cricket Valley Energy Station, a new combined cycle natural gas-fueled power plant located in Dover, England.

ABB's grid integration business managing director Patrick Fragman said: “This advanced GIS substation will boost transmission capacity, improve efficiency, and enhance power reliability for millions of New Yorker consumers.

“ABB’s world leading, robust, and compact gas-insulated switchgear provides differentiated customer value, a key focus area of our next level strategy.”

"This advanced GIS substation will boost transmission capacity, improve efficiency, and enhance power reliability."

A manufacturer of electrification products and power grids, ABB explained that the substation would improve the reliability of the New York transmission grid, benefitting around one million homes in the region. The company will build the 345kV gas insulated switchgear (GIS) substation, which will feature the highest levels of reliability and safety.

The project will also feature GIS technology to improve operational reliability, efficiency, and safety, while minimising substation footprint and maintenance requirements.
