ABB, the leading power and automation technology group, recently won six contracts collectively worth more than $150 million to supply main electrical systems for drilling rigs and drill-ships built in Asia.

The orders were booked during the third quarter of 2008.

ABB will supply the complete electrical system for the rigs, including generators, medium and low voltage power distribution, thruster drive systems, drilling drive system and related engineering and services.
