Transmit the power of wind

ABB provides its customers with the most comprehensive transmission offering, helping to address the challenge of balancing rising demand for power with increasing concern for the environment

Our transmission capabilities extend to three areas: HVDC Light, high voltage cables, and offshore wind connections. HVDC Light transmits power underground, under water and also over long distances. Environmental benefits include “invisible” power lines, neutral electromagnetic fields, oil-free cables and compact converter stations.

ABB draws on 140 years of unparalleled cable expertise, delivering high-voltage AC and DC cable system solutions for all types of submarine and underground power transmission applications.

ABB’s transmission experience also enables us to address the engineering challenges of erecting the massive structures needed to create an offshore power-generation plant. To minimize the risks posed in such an unforgiving environment, ABB developed the Gravity Based Structure (GBS) to accommodate HVDC converter stations. These self-contained platforms include all sub-systems and facilities—ventilation and air conditioning, water, sewage, cooling, backup diesel generators, etc.—required to support platform operation.
