Hitachi, Ltd. and Hitachi America, Ltd. Enter in to Joint Research Agreement with Bonneville Power Administration

Hitachi, Ltd. and Hitachi America, Ltd. announced an agreement on joint research with the Bonneville Power Administration (BPA) of the U.S. Department of Energy to continue the development of a grid stabilization system. The goal of the project is to develop and conduct PoC testing of an online demonstration system over the next 21 months, beginning in October, with the cooperation of Chubu Electric Power Co. Inc. (CEPCO). CEPCO is one of the major electric utility companies in Japan, with much experience in development and use of a similar comprehensive grid stabilization system. This new research effort will focus on integrating phasor measurement units (PMU) data for tuning and validation of the calculated results. In December 2012, Hitachi was selected by BPA to participate in its fiscal year 2013 Technology Innovation R&D program for a research project entitled, 'Research into Grid Stabilization Systems to Facilitate Introduction of Renewable Energy.' That project was completed in February. The North American electricity market in recent years has seen growing use of renewable energy from sources such as wind and photovoltaic power generation, which produce variable output. The joint research project was prompted by the growing effects that renewable energy may impose on the grid as it becomes a larger proportion of the total power generated. In particular, conventional grid control schemes may not adjust quickly enough as the amount of variable renewable energy grows. Variable renewables can cause fluctuations in voltage, current and frequency, and have the potential to degrade power quality, potentially resulting in major outages. With greater integration of variable renewable energy sources likely in the future, this creates a need to investigate new grid stabilization systems. Based on the concepts developed by Hitachi in the past research project, the new project will use data collected from the grid in real time to conduct PoC testing of the new grid stabilization system as a grid control technology for preventing large outages caused by phenomena such as the flow-on effects of grid faults. The system was developed by combining grid analysis techniques and information technology with PMU, which are widely adopted in the United States. It will be installed at a BPA research facility and operated in parallel with online systems to investigate possible reliability improvements, economic benefits and viability for practical implementation.

Hitachi, Ltd., Veolia Environnement and ArabCo Win Contract to Build Pretreatment Facilities for Large-Scale Water Desalination Plant in Basrah, Iraq

Hitachi Ltd. and Veolia Environnement announced that a consortium formed by their two companies, along with ArabCo has received an order from the Iraqi Ministry of Municipalities and Public Works for the engineering, procurement, and construction of pretreatment facilities and surrounding facilities at a water desalination plant in Basrah, Iraq. The value of the order will total about 24 billion yen, of which JPY 10 billion for Hitachi and Veolia 1. Construction is scheduled to begin in October 2014, with completion scheduled for April 2017. The consortium received a comprehensive order in January 2014 for EPC on the water desalination plant as well as operation and maintenance for a period of five years. The new pretreatment facilities represent an additional project following up on the order in January. The construction of these facilities will be undertaken with loan assistance from the Japanese government. The desalination plant that is currently scheduled for construction in Basrah will be the facility of its kind in Iraq, capable of supplying 199,000 cubic meters of drinking water per day. It will use reverse osmosis to reduce the salt content in water drawn from a river near the river's mouth, where the salt concentration is high. The new pretreatment facilities covered by the additional order received by the three companies are coagulation- sedimentation facilities, which will undertake pretreatment of water to be processed at the desalination plant. In addition, the consortium will also install surrounding facilities, which are river water intake facilities and water transport facilities. Hitachi and Veolia will be responsible for the design, delivery, and test operation of mechanical and electrical facilities, and ArabCo will be responsible for civil engineering, construction, and on-site installation work.
