New Cable Technology Can Carry Twice as much Power

New cable technology from ABB Ltd increases the carrying capacity of energy from offshore wind farms from 1,000 megawatts to about 2,600 megawatts. This technology brings a much needed breakthrough as projects were not previously moving forward due to the lack of large enough cables. These cables will allow wind farms to use even larger turbines and are currently the most powerful connection cables in the world.
