ABB provides subsea cable for the Humber Gateway offshore wind farm

ABB will supply the power export cables for the UK's 219 MW Humber Gateway offshore windfarm under an order worth around US$15 million.


ABB will design and supply 2 x 14 km circuits of 132 kV three-core AC submarine cable, with integrated fibre optics, to connect Humber Gateway to the mainland grid. Delivery of the cable is scheduled for 2013.


When completed, in 2015, Humber Gateway offshore wind farm  will consist of a 73 wind turbine array 8 km off the East Yorkshire coast, just north of the mouth of the river Humber.


"This subsea cable will provide a reliable and efficient link between offshore wind farms and the mainland grid enabling a clean energy supply," says Martin Gross, Head of ABB's Grid System business within the company's Power Systems division.


"Offshore wind power, as a fast growing source of large-scale renewable energy is making an increasing contribution towards lowering the environmental impact of electricity generation."
