Automation technology group ABB was awarded a contract to supply automation and safety systems, electrical equipment and related services for a new gas compression station that will serve a natural gas pipeline that runs across northern Turkey.

The contract was awarded by Teknotes, the Turkish EPC subcontractor of engineering and construction firm Tecnicas Reunidas.

The end customer is Botas, Turkey’s state-owned petroleum pipeline company.

The new Erzincan gas compressor station will be located in eastern Turkey and will consist of four turbine/compressor units with three units in operation and one unit spare.

The flow rate of the pipeline varies between 1.6 to 2 million standard cubic meter/hour. ABB’s delivery will help to increase the overall transportation capacity of the pipeline, which supplies energy to a majority of Turkey’s residents, the company said.

ABB’s supply scope includes an integrated 800xA automation system to control the compressor station and other processes, 800xA High Integrity safety system for emergency shutdown, instrumentation, as well as transformers, medium and low voltage panels, and other electrical equipment.

ABB will also provide all site control and engineering documentation, and related installation services, it said.

“ABB’s advanced automation solutions, electrical scope of supply, and in-depth process knowledge will help this site to operate efficiently, reliably and safely from day one.” said Veli-Matti Reinikkala, head of ABB’s process automation division.

“Our excellent industry reputation and project experience with this pipeline were also important in this contract win.”

This is ABB’s third gas compressor station contract from Botas in the last three years, according to the company.

ABB also delivered electrification and automation systems also for the previous two stations, in Sivas and Corum, Turkey.
