ABB, Zurich, Switzerland, will supply, install, and commission 116 km of underground cable and 56 km of submarine cable, to strengthen the existing transmission grid and allow using more wind power from the Rødsand II offshore wind park which will be commissioned late 2010. The 145-kV cable is intended to manage overload and has a double-circuit option which helps secure power transmission even if the cable gets damaged. The cable will contribute to Denmark’s goal of 30% renewable energy consumption by 2020.
“This shows how ABB technologies are helping integrate renewable energy, thereby letting more wind power flow into electricity systems”, says Per Haugland, global head of ABB’s Grid Systems business.
