The installation process for switching post and AT stations usually involves a multi-vendor supply chain, complex logistics and time consuming process that causes disruptions to passenger and freight services. ABB has developed an alternative - innovative plug and play modules that can be erected and commissioned overnight. Available for either indoor or outdoor installation.
Traditionally many industries and engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) companies received their switchgear, drives, periphery distribution equipment and automation systems from multiple electrical equipment suppliers and obtained the electrical house from a fabricator. Inherent in this approach is the potential for increased risk of integration errors, higher costs and longer commissioning times. A single vendor capable of engineering, designing, assembling, packaging, testing and delivering the equipment, as well as managing the fabrication of the electrical house, is the key to reducing these risks.
