ABB has won an order to provide substations for a Sussex wind farm.
It will also provide power infrastructure for the offshore platform as well as the onshore substation to efficiently integrate the new wind farm into the country’s transmission grid.
The Rampion Offshore wind farm, developed by E.ON in partnership with the UK green Investment Bank, is located between Worthing and Brighton.
It will have 116 turbines and is expected to generate 400MW of electricity and reduce carbon emissions by up to 600,000 tonnes a year.
Claudio Facchin, President of ABB’s Power Systems division said: “We are pleased to contribute with our innovative technologies and proven project execution experience to support the enhancement of renewables in the UK’s energy mix and the strengthening of the power infrastructure.”
