NAW Staff, Wednesday 09 April 2014 - 10:52:55

ABB has won an order worth around $40 million from Energinet.dk, the Danish transmission system operator, to build an alternating-current power cable system that will help integrate and transmit power from the Horns Rev 3 offshore wind farm.

The 400 MW Horns Rev 3 wind farm is to be located in the North Sea, about 30 km off the western-most point of Denmark. Power will be brought to shore via a 32-km-long, 220 kV submarine cable.

ABB’s project scope includes the technical design, engineering and production of the high-voltage cable system, including accessories and installation. Delivery will commence in 2016.
