ABB to supply cable for U.K. offshore wind farm extension

Sponsored by

Power and automation group ABB won an order worth around $30 million from Dong Energy, a wind power development company, to supply a high-voltage export cable system that will transmit power from the Burbo Bank Extension Offshore Wind Farm in the U.K.

ABB’s project scope includes the design, engineering, supply and commissioning of the 15 mile long 220 kV AC submarine cable and the related offshore substation cable. ABB will also supply 20 miles of AC underground cables and the associated substation cables as well as the cable joints, accessories and terminations related to the project.

The Burbo Bank Offshore Wind Farm is situated on the Burbo Flats in Liverpool Bay at the mouth of the Mersey river, about 4 miles from the Sefton coastline a 5 miles from North Wirral. Burbo Bank receives the full force of the wind from the Irish Sea in the west, making it an ideal location for offshore wind power generation.

The Burbo Bank Extension covers an area of 25 miles and has an estimated generating capacity of up to 258 MW — enough electricity to meet the needs of about 240,000 households. The proposed project would be located west of the operational Burbo Bank offshore wind farm in Liverpool Bay.
