A current challenge to increase the cost efficiency of the offshore wind industry is the capex and operational cost of the electrical distribution system including offshore substations.
ABB can design and integrate the electrical system for HVAC offshore substations. ABB has a proven engineering knowledge to find the right system for optimized Levelized Cost of Energy (LCOE)
With the carve out of its Power Grids business, ABB is flexible with regards to sub supply selection for HV electrical equipment. Sub suppliers can include Hitachi ABB Power Grids, GE, Smit, Chem and others. ABB furthermore has a solid experience in delivering modular packages, such as e-houses, to offshore applications.
