Oil & Gas Solutions

Distribution of delivered power is a critical component of heavy industry, and local substations require the same degree of automation and management as those run by the utility, with the possibility of additional, industry-specific, demands.

Protecting the investment in local substations, and protecting the people working around them, is of paramount importance, but it must be done economically and realistically. Suppliers, and partners, need experience, knowledge and a skilled workforce to ensure the best solution is delivered to every problem.

Modern automation isn’t just about collecting, and collating, data; though that remains a central task of any automation system, the increasing intelligence of IED’s, Relays and RTUs offers scope for greater autonomy too. Decisions can be made locally, or in concert with other local devices, while centralized SCADA systems alert human operators to decisions made by the machines.

ABB’s range of protection and automation offers unparalleled intelligence, while our experience can guide you to the right solution.

ABB’s Relion® family of protection devices offers full compatibility with IEC61850, and related standards, to enable integration with ABB’s MicroSCADA Pro platform, or comparable systems, with equal utility, while ABB’s family of device-specific protection ensures intelligence is in the right place. But ABB isn’t about any specific protection product, but more our ability to provide the support, consultation and experience to become a partner, and not just a supplier.
