ABB has won orders worth over US$ 300 million for power technologies to enable two new ultra-high-voltage direct current (UHVDC) power transmission links.
The two 800 kV links will each have the capacity to transmit 8,000MW of wind and thermal power from Shanxi to Nanjing and from Jiuquan to Hunan. ABB will supply HVDC converters, converter transformers and components, capacitors and filters, and high voltage circuit breakers to facilitate the efficient and reliable long distance transmission of electricity. Converter transformers for the two projects will serve as the vital interface between the AC network and the DC links.
