ABB has announced it has won a contract worth US$16 million to supply the power cables to Lillgrund offshore wind farm in Sweden.
The company won the order from Siemens Wind Power in Denmark to deliver more than 33 kilometres of single-core AC cable and armoured three-core AC cable with integrated optical fibre, supplied by ABB’s high voltage cable and accessories production facilities in Sweden. ABB will supply and install 6 kilometres of 145-kilovolt (kV) underground cable, and 27 kilometres of 145kV and 36kV submarine cables to interconnect the 48 wind turbines (each 2.3MW), and transmit the power generated to the Swedish mainland. The installation will be ready at the end of summer 2007.
