Smart transportation – ABB eco-efficient solutions to boost sustainable development in transportation

June 28-29, 2017, ABB Customer Word (ACW 2017) in Hangzhou, China, ABB will introduce a series products and solutions to be applied in the transporation industry for more than 5,000 customers.

Eco-efficient switchgear

ABB is committed to help customers improve value as well as protect the environment and save energy. In order to reduce the greenhouse effect by SF6, ABB developed eco-efficient switchgear for power distribution in rail applications, including Dry Air insulated 12kV RMU Safe Air and 12kV switchgear ZX0 Air, as well as innovative AirPlus insulated 40.5kV switchgear ZX2 AirPlus. These new products reduce >99.99% of the GWP (Global Warming Potential) , while keeping all the advantages of compact, reliable and safe of mature GIS. The main insulation does not depend on the solid insulation, achieving the features of long-term reliability. Substation operators no longer need to monitor SF6, saving customer investment cost.

DC switchgear, DC wayside traction power rectifier and braking energy management system

ABB’s comprehensive portfolio covers all functional requirements of modern traction power supply systems. In May 2017, ABB launched DC switchgear and DC wayside traction power solutions and energy management in China, a welcome addition to modern city transportation solutions, as well as a breakthrough to boost the entire industrial upgrade and development.

DCGear DC Switchgear is developed by ABB to improve the stability and reliability of DC traction power supply system, serving as control and protection equipment for the DC power distribution to overhead lines or third rails in the electrification system of metro, tramway and mining rail haulage.

ABB ENVILINETM product portfolio is offering the total solution for the DC traction power supply system of urban rail transit, converting alternating current into direct current, and the braking energy management system is helping to reduce the total energy consumption of a rail transportation system up to 30%. The two new products launching signify a new era’s coming and our continuous efforts on driving localization of the whole value chain.

In ACW, ABB will showthes innovations with technical seminars to fully demostrate the value in all levels for customers, showcasing how the company delivers safe, reliable and environmental-friendly transportation in China and for China.
