ABB has won orders worth more than $300 million (£195m) for technologies to enable two new power transmission lines.

They have the capacity to transmit 8,000MW of wind and thermal power from Shanxi to Nanjing and from Jiuquan to Hunan. That’s enough electricity to meet the needs of 26 million consumers.

ABB will supply converters, transformers and high voltage circuit breakers for the two projects.

Claudio Facchin, President of ABB’s Power Systems division said: “These projects will help integrate more renewable energy and further strengthen China’s transmission grid.”
