ABB to supply cable for RWE wind farm

Renewable energy group RWE Innogy and ABB, a provider of power and automation technologies, have signed a contract worth around €10m (£8m) for the delivery of underwater cable for the offshore wind farm Nordsee Ost.

In total, ABB will supply around 63km of sea cable, which will be used to network the 48 wind turbines of the wind farm and connect them to an offshore transformer station.

The undersea cable will be produced by an ABB subsidiary in Sweden.
