China's power grid

ABB's technology provides transmission links

As China’s economy continues to grow at an extraordinary rate, so does the need for power. Currently, the highest priority is bringing power to the fast-developing industrialized areas around Shanghai and Guangdong.

ABB has responded to the challenge by building two of the world’s most powerful and longest high voltage direct current (HVDC) transmission links—a technology well suited to transmitting power over long distances. The links will transport power from the massive Three Gorges Power Plant to coastal areas in Shanghai and Shenzen. The project has many technical, economic and environmental benefits.
