  ABB helps Finnish energy company improve process monitoring

7. June 2018 – ABB will use ABB Ability technology to upgrade one of its substations in Helsinki to meet increased power needs, improve power reliability, and support transmission system operators (19659003) The 400 kilovolt (kV) Länsisalmi substation, the housed in a glass-clad building plays a key role in the Finnish transmission network. As part of the project, ABB replaced an air-insulated switchgear (AIS) with a gas-insulated switchgear (GIS), which releases 70 percent of the space occupied by the old system

. ABB will install modular switchgear monitoring equipment (MSM) on the GIS to enable on-line condition monitoring of the circuit breakers. To reduce additional cabling, the signals are collected locally over Wi-Fi using the IEC61850 protocol and then uploaded to ABB's Ability Ellipse APM (Asset Performance Management). The sensor technology will help Fingrid to digitize its resources and turn Länsisalmi into a modern GIS switchgear.

Fingrid will also test the use of the ABB Ability Ellipse APM to conduct predictive analysis to prevent critical failures across the entire fleet of transmission vehicles including transformers Interrupters and Transmission System Equipment
