About The Customer
The Challenge

With the newly launched ABB Al-Quoz Solar Power Station, there is a need for the plant to be energy-efficient in order to ensure the benefits of renewable technologies, their seamless integration into the existing electrical grid and reinforce Dubai's position as a world-class smart city.

The Solution

A comprehensive suite of ABB solutions were employed to address the aforementioned challenge. A variety of ABB string inverters will be used to convert current in this solar plant. The BMS system will control and monitor the complete rooftop system, the i-bus® KNX system (temperature and lighting control) plus the power management with the Emax 2 air circuit breakers. This enables monitoring of the inverters, meteorological department data, power metering and analysis of the building’s lighting and temperature settings as well. Ekip SmartVision connects the ABB solar rooftop to the Internet of Things, creating a digital profile of the photovoltaic installation, continuously analyzing the power quality, as well as tracking trends in the site's energy production and demand.
