ABB to upgrade aluminum smelter in Dubai

Houston, TX, May 27, 2008 – ABB won an $18-million contract from Dubai Aluminum Company Limited (DUBAL) for additional electrical and automation system upgrades at the company’s 480-hectare smelter complex in Dubai. The order follows the $53-million order placed by DUBAL for this project earlier this year.


DUBAL operates one of the largest single-site aluminum smelters in the world, having produced approximately 890,000 tons of aluminum in 2007. It is one of the largest non-oil contributors to Dubai’s economy.


“ABB’s proven track record of delivering results, combined with our comprehensive service and product portfolio, are crucial to the success of our customers like DUBAL,” said Veli-Matti Reinikkala, head of ABB’s Process Automation division. “Over the years, our leading-edge solutions have helped DUBAL continue to grow their capacity while improving their productivity and energy efficiency.”

ABB过程自动化事业部主管Veli-Matti Reinikkala表示:“ABB经过证明了的交付成果记录,再加上我们全面的服务和产品组合,是我们比如迪拜铝业这样的客户成功的关键。多年来,我们领先的解决方案已经帮助迪拜铝业继续增长其产能,同时高它们的生产力和能源效率。”

Under the terms of the contract, ABB will add one additional high-voltage regulating transformer (rectiformer, used to convert alternating current to direct current) rated at 100 megavolt amperes, to increase capacity in two smelting potlines.


ABB will provide design, installation and commissioning services for the project, and upgrade the DC collector bar on two potlines. The delivery includes control and protection systems, as well two new ABB SCADA systems for the rectiformer station control.

ABB将为该项目提供设计、安装以及调试服务,以及升级那两个电解电池列直流电收集棒。交付的包括控制和保护系统,以及两个用于整流变压器站控制的ABB SCADA新系统。

This order is in addition to the $53-million contract awarded by DUBAL earlier this year, as well as other projects for DUBAL. In 2006, ABB was commissioned to deliver a similar scope of supply for an earlier expansion of this smelter complex.


Commissioning of the new units is scheduled for completion in late 2009.
