ABB India automates cross-border oil pipeline

ABB India, a unit of Swedish-Swiss engineering and technology major ABB Ltd, will secure the 130 km Indo-Bangla Friendship Pipeline (IBFPL), through integrated automation and control solutions, the company said.

The cross-border pipeline was jointly inaugurated by Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Bangladesh Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina on March 18. It will carry diesel from India to Bangladesh.

“ABB’s SCAD Avantage, Remote Terminal Units (RTUs), and leak detection system will allow Numaligarh Refinery Ltd (NRL) to remotely monitor and control vital pipeline parameters such as flow, pressure, and temperature, as well as detect leaks,” said G Balaji, SVP, Head of Energy Industries, ABB India.

SCADA (supervisory control and data acquisition) is a software application for controlling industrial processes, which gathers data in real time from remote locations to control equipment and conditions.
