Description: Engineering, design review, construction, commissioning, operation and training of new, completely operational, soft start systems and motor controls for nine pump motors at the Dokan-Sulaymaniyah Dam. The system will include all necessary connections, controls and cabling for a complete soft start system for these pumps for 3 pump stations. The system is designed and manufactured by German Company MOCOTECH. The system contains the following:

 

LS 1 Pump: Supply soft starter system including all requirements, for operating motors of 3 IDP Pumps (12 kV) including cables and capacitor bank for correction over factors. Specifications as follows: 850 kW, Power factor: 0.83, Line Voltage: 11kV, Type: Squirrel Cage, Manufacturer: ABB, Motor Current: 54.4A, Soft Starter Current:140A, PFC selected: 350 kVA.

 

LS 2 PUMP: Supply soft starter system including all requirements , for operating motors of 3 IDP Pumps (12 kV) including cables and capacitor bank for correction over factors. Specifications as follows: 1,500 kW, Power factor : 0.87, Line Voltage: 11kV, Type: Squirrel Cage, Manufacturer: ABB, Motor Current: 90.47A, Soft Starter Current:140A, PFC selected: 400 kVA.

 

LS 3 PUMP: Supply soft starter system including all requirements , for operating motors of 3 IDP Pumps (12 kV) including cables and capacitor bank for correction over factors. Specifications as follows: 1,720 kW, Power factor : 0.86, Line Voltage: 11kV, Type: Squirrel Cage, Manufacturer: ABB, Motor Current: 105A, Soft Starter Current:140A, PFC selected: 500 kVA.

 

Staff Details: A site office with highly experienced engineers and technicians managing the site activity was established. Outside Iraq, offices supported the project by purchasing equipment.
