ZURICH (Reuters) - ABB has won orders worth more than $150 million from Danish energy company Orsted to supply technology to transmit wind energy from Hornsea Project Two, slated to be the world’s largest offshore wind farm.

The orders were booked in the second quarter of 2018, ABB said on Wednesday, and are the first part of a global five-year agreement for the supply of electrical and automation equipment for offshore and onshore wind power connection and integration to the grid.

Hornsea Two is a 1,400 megawatt (MW) project to develop wind resources in the North Sea about 100 km off the Yorkshire coast. Upon completion, it will be able to deliver enough clean electrical power to more than 1.3 million homes annually.
