ABB has won a US$33-million contract to supply underwater power cables and electrical equipment for phase one of the Thornton Bank wind farm, about 30 kilometres off the Belgian coast in the North Sea.

The 60-turbine project is being built in phases by Belgian wind-farm developer, C-Power NV, and will add 300MW of wind-generated electrical capacity to the national grid. ABB's scope of supply includes electrical system analysis, submarine power cables with integrated fiber optics, jointing and the installation of terminations onshore and on the wind turbines. ABB is also supplying all the main electrical equipment for onshore substation. Phase one of Thornton Bank will be commissioned in 2008.
