abb ltd-reg (ABBN) Key Developments

ABB Launches Underground and Subsea Power Transmission Cable System

ABB has announced a breakthrough in cable technology. It has successfully developed and tested a 525 kilovolt (kV) extruded high-voltage direct current (HVDC) cable system to make renewable energy installations more efficient and cost-effective. This latest innovation will more than double the power capacity to about 2,600 megawatts (MW) from 1,000 MW. It will also expand the cable's reach to distances of 1,500 kilometers, up from less than 1,000 kilometers, while keeping transmission losses under 5%. The new cable offers a 64% increase over 320 kV, currently the high voltage deployed for this type of technology. The 525kV cable system can be deployed in subsea and underground applications, making it ideal for efficient power delivery through densely populated or environmentally sensitive areas or coastal and open-sea applications. By enabling more power over greater distances with reduced losses, ABB's new 525 kV cable technology offers solutions for countries and utilities seeking to enable their electricity transmission systems to integrate more renewable energy being generated by distant solar and wind installations. The new technology offers savings in capital and operational expenses. It also supports the development of DC grids where ABB removed a key technology hurdle with the development of the hybrid HVDC breaker. HVDC cable links are essential components of future sustainable energy systems that will need to transmit vast amounts of electricity over long distances, often across or between countries.

ABB Wins Contact from Atlantis to Provide Grid Connection

ABB has won a contract from Atlantis Resources Limited to provide the onshore grid connection for Phase-I of the MeyGen tidal stream project in Pentland Firth, Scotland. Major product supplies include transformers, medium voltage switchgear and power converters.

ABB Wins Order from LKAB to Supply New Hoist to Kiruna Mine in Sweden

ABB has won an order from LKAB to supply a new mine hoist to its mine in Kiruna. As the first stage LKAB will install a new hoist, with the option to modernize the other seven existing hoists in its CA hoisting plant within the coming eight to ten years. ABB's delivery includes mechanical equipment for the hoist plant and shafts, electrical and control equipment, construction, electrical installation, installation supervision, site management as well as commissioning. The CA hoisting plant, which is the main artery of LKAB's production flow, is raising ore from the sub level (898 m) up to ground level. The purpose of the investment is to achieve high and reliable production for the coming 20 years.
