ABB has won an order from LS Industrial Systems (LSIS) to deliver a utility communications solution that will serve seven electricity distribution control centers in Iraq.

According to ABB, the project is part of a larger infrastructure improvement initiative currently being carried out by the Ministry of Electricity in Iraq, aimed at establishing a dependable power network.

ABB says it will deliver a communications system capable of transmitting data from 428 distribution substations and 150 maintenance centers in the grid to seven regional control centers. The system will include broadband wireless radios to carry both data and voice transmissions, which will help ensure reliable operation of the grid and support the identification, isolation and resolution of faults.
