The KraftPowercon UPS division has received an order from the ABB Group for the North Sea link project between Kvilldal in Norway and Blyth in the United Kingdom. When the project is complete, it will be the world’s longest power connection on the seabed with its 730 kilometers. The link should connect the energy market between the countries and the hydropower in Norway with the wind power in the UK.

The Växjö company will provide solutions for uninterrupted power for both stations.

“Great fun to get this prestige project in a tough international competition. This is a milestone for us”, says Håkan Rydenborg, responsible salesman at KraftPoweron, in a press release.
