ABB helps keep power flowing in southern Alberta

ABB, the leading power and automation technology company, announces that it has been awarded an important contract in Langdon near Calgary by AltaLink, L.P., Alberta's largest electrical transmission provider.

The contract calls for ABB to initially replace certain components at risk of failure within AltaLink's current Static Var Compensator (SVC), and during a second phase, to replace the existing unit with an entirely new ABB-designed and manufactured SVC system.
