Order Focus: ABB Automation supplies Elkem Solar with electrical and automation systems



The process line at Elkem Solar’s Kristiansand, Norway-based facility is to be outfitted with an ABB Automation electrical and automation system on the System 800xA platform. Elkem recently invested US$700 million in the new facility, which holds the capacity to produce 6,000 metric tons of high-purity silicon per year.

The production line has five independent process steps for which ABB Norway has supplied all electrical high/low voltage infrastructures to the plant. ABB also furnished a process automation based on the System 800xA for two of the process steps. The process line was brought into operation in July 2009.
