ABB to help with Brazilian pipeline enclosures

Oct 16, 2018

ABB reported Sept. 28 that it recently won an order from the SACS/NIPLAN construction consortium to supply e-houses to support the modernization of the São Paulo pipeline network in Brazil.

E-houses are prefabricated, modular outdoor enclosures designed to house a range of electrical and automation equipment. Requiring less time to install, commission, deliver and start up, they offer a faster alternative to traditional on-site concrete or brick-built constructions, but can still be designed to meet specific requirements.

ABB will provide e-houses for the 47 pumping stations along the pipeline, which are spread across 47 kilometers, connecting a station being built in São Bernardo do Campo to the Capuava Refinery (RECAP) in Mauá in São Paulo.

Produced at ABB's facility in Sorocaba, near São Paulo, e-houses are 112 square meters, use special anti-corrosion paint, and have ISO9001 certification. Often needing to be located in remote or harsh terrains, typically where pipeline repairs are undertaken, ABB's e-houses can withstand aggressive environmental conditions, such as material corrosion.
