ABB has won a $100 million order from Energinet.dk, the Danish transmission system operator, to build an alternating current (AC) cable system that will enable the integration and transmission of power from the Kriegers Flak offshore wind farm to the mainland grid.
ABB will design, supply and install three high-voltage AC 220 kV submarine cables with a total length of 100 kilometers. The project is slated for commissioning in 2018. The cable system will connect the offshore wind farm platforms Kriegers Flak A and B to Rodvig, located in Denmark.
The planned 600 MW wind farm will help strengthen regional energy markets and increase the security of supply by boosting transmission capacity. Denmark's largest offshore wind farm will help to increase the country's wind power capacity to more than 40%, notes ABB.
