  1. 1. ABB Grid Systems in the UK Project Portfolio Peter Jones Engineering Manager Grid Systems ABB UK© ABB2010 slide 1
  2. 2. Smart Grid Energy Storage Deployment The First Distribution Network Connected Lithium IonEnergy Storage Device in the UK Building on Real Experience© ABB 2010 | Page 2
  3. 3. Grid Systems in the UKSmart Grid Tier 1 LCNF Energy Storage Project  ABB Grid Systems in the UK project managed the UK’s first Energy Storage unit to be connected on the UK Power Networks (ex EDF) 11kV distribution system in Norfolk with ABB colleagues from FACTS Sweden.  The project will help ABB, UK Power Networks and Durham University assess the true benefits of energy storage here is a Video Presentation from Professor Phil Taylor explaining the benefits to the system of Energy Storage and at the same event a Saft Video Presentation which explains the UK Power Networks Project  The following is a UK Power Network Video which explains the project and the technology.© ABB2010 slide 3
  4. 4. ABB AC Technology Deployed for Offshore Wind© ABB 2010 | Page 4
  5. 5. Grid Systems in the UKQ7 Princess Amalia Wind Farm 120 MW  Now well established technology, AC connected platforms have been deployed for offshore windfarms for several years.  Installed in 2008 the Princess Amalia offshore platform equipment was provided by ABB.  ABB also provided the subsea cables  28 km of 170 kV shore connection power cable with Cu conductors and integrated optical fibre cables  40 km, 24 kV inter-turbine cables with Al and Cu conductors and integrated optical fibre cable.  The following video shows Q7 Princess Amalia Wind Farm 120 MW© ABB2010 slide 5
  6. 6. ABB HVDC Technology Deployed for Offshore Wind© ABB 2010 | Page 6
  7. 7. Grid Systems in the UKHVDC Offshore Projects Troll A Oil and Gas  ABB Pioneered HVDC Offshore with the Troll A, Oil and Gas Platform Power Supply.  Opened in 2005 it has provided one of Europes largest platforms with reliable power to operate the compressors.  With a second order now placed for additional HVDC converter capacity reliable operation has been demonstrated on the Troll A Platform  The following video explains how ABB placed the worlds first HVDC offshore 7 years ago.© ABB2010 slide 7
  8. 8. Grid Systems in the UKHVDC Offshore Projects BorWin 1 400MW  Following on from the extensive design and operational experience gained form the Troll A project  ABB went on to build the worlds first 400MW HVDC offshore wind platform BorWin 1, commissioned in 2009  The following video explains the project© ABB2010 slide 8
  9. 9. Grid Systems in the UKHVDC Offshore Projects DolWin 1 800MW  ABB is now constructing the worlds largest HVDC platform for Tennet in Germany  DolWin 1 is an 800MW HVDC single converter platform operating at 320kV.  In the final stages of construction the following video shows how the platform construction is progressing© ABB2010 slide 9
  10. 10. New ABB HVDC UK Interconnector to Ireland 500MW VSC Technology© ABB 2010 | Page 10
  11. 11. Grid Systems in the UKInterconnecting Europe  ABB is building the UKs first 500MW HVDC Voltage Source Converter (VSC) link between Ireland an Wales  Due to come into operation this year the project is being delivered by the Grid Systems Team  The technology used is the same technology that will allow the interconnection of Europe and the creation of an interconnected North Sea Grid  The following video explains the project
