ABB has been awarded a $100m contract from Mass Global Holding to build a gas-insulated switchgear substation in Iraq.

ABB's Power Grids division, which is undergoing strategic review for a possible sale, will deliver, engineer and commission the substation for customer Mass Global Holding, according to a statement.

This will be the largest 400/132kilovolt substation in Iraq - equipped with state-of-the-art gas insulated switchgear.

ABB's GIS technology will enhance operational reliability, efficiency and safey while minimising substation footprint and maintenance requirements.

In 2014, private company Mass Global announced that it and Iraqi banks would finance a $3bn megawatt gas-fired power plant being built by Turkey's Enka Insaat in the Iraqi cisty of Bismayah.
