ABB has won orders worth over US$ 150 million from Ørsted to supply a range of technologies that will help integrate and transmit renewable wind energy from the Hornsea Project Two offshore wind farm.
ABB will supply its Static Var Compensation (SVC) Light technology with ABB Ability MACH control systems, High Voltage gas-insulated switchgear (GIS), transformers, reactors and harmonic filters. ABB will also be responsible for the engineering, supply, project management and commissioning of the digital control and protection systems for the onshore substation and the two offshore platform substations. The electrical power flow from Hornsea Two farm will be protected and controlled by a Static Compensation (STATCOM) system. Hornsea Two is a 1,400MW project to develop wind resources in the North Sea about 100 kilometers off the Yorkshire coast.
