ABB provided several key technical solutions to deliver electric power reliably and continuously to kickstart the development plan for Toshka’s new agricultural area in the South Valley in Egypt. Deliveries included medium voltage primary and secondary switchgear, UniGear and UniSec, along with compact substations for the first three phases of the project. ABB also delivered complete solutions to provide reliable, energy-efficient operation for the project's 57 pumping stations. This included hundreds of motors, variable speed drives (VSDs) and soft starters. ACQ580 water dedicated drive play a key role by matching the speed and torque of the electric motors to the pumping demand, thereby offering significant energy savings, typically from 30 to 50 percent compared to conventional equipment.
