ABB's unique and open concept for implementing network communications on substation automation systems with critical interlocks helps Petrobras optimize operational and energy costs
Large energy company expanding substation infrastructure
Petrobras is an energy company that serves in Brazil and abroad with over 100 platforms, 16 refineries, and 6000 gas stations. It has been investing over 100 Billion USD over the recent years for improving and streamlining the infrastructure.
When expanding its Substation Automation (SA) infrastructure, new substations had to be integrated with legacy Power Management Systems (PMS). The PMS functionality and data had to be shared with both the new and legacy systems. At the same time, they were looking for better performance, reliability and system information.
