Offshore Wind

ABB technology for offshore wind power installations enables transmission of renewable high-voltage power with minimal losses

ABB has been in the wind industry since its beginning, and is one of the biggest independent suppliers of electrical components for offshore wind power plants, as well as a technology leader in linking offshore wind farms to the grid. ABB supplies HVDC cable systems that connect remote wind farms to mainland grids, HVAC cable systems that link near-shore wind farms to shore and HVAC cables that link wind farm clusters to HVDC converter stations.

Offshore wind farms consist of a number of wind turbine generators. A grid of submarine cables interconnects the generators and bring the power to shore. In larger offshore parks the generators are connected to an offshore platform that carries a step-up transformer. From the transformer platform, a high-voltage submarine cable transmits the power to shore.

ABB has the capacity, expertise and experience to perform all of the different types of technical operations an offshore wind project may require, which enables connection of green energy from remote and near-shore wind farms to mainland grids. Cable links that connect offshore wind farms to shore contribute to sustainable electricity distribution, while also affirming ABB’s commitment to deliver power and productivity for a better world.
