ABB Ltd to Deliver Subsea High-Voltage Link to Icelandic Island


Thursday, 28 Feb 2013 05:08am EST 

ABB Ltd announced that it has received an order worth around USD 10 million, from Landsnet, the Icelandic transmission system operator, to supply a high-voltage submarine and underground power-cable system that will transport electricity from the mainland to the volcanic island of Heimaey. Heimaey is the only inhabited island of the Vestmannaeyiar archipelago off the southern coast of Iceland. The new 72 kilovolt (kV) cable system will replace an existing cable that is approaching the end of its operating life. It will increase the transmission capacity of the existing power link to ensure that the island’s 4,100 inhabitants and thriving fishing industry continue to receive reliable electricity supplies. ABB will deliver the entire 17.5 kilometer (km) high-voltage cable system, including a 13 km submarine section, a 4.5 km underground section, and an integrated fiber-optic cable for telecommunications and temperature monitoring of the power cables. As part of the turnkey solution, ABB is responsible for design, engineering, submarine cable laying, joints and terminations, testing and commissioning.
