ABB Wins Utility Telecommunications Order in the UK

ABB has won an order from Cable & Wireless to supply a specialized utility telecommunication system as part of a customer contract.

As part of the project, ABB will deliver a range of utility communication solutions designed and developed for high performance in challenging high-voltage applications. The system supplied by ABB is an integral part of a project, which involves a major upgrade of the core network infrastructure and operational systems that interconnect 410 high-voltage substations throughout the U.K.

The project scope includes engineering, supply, cubicle assembly, installation and commissioning of the system, including multiplexers or devices that combine several application signals into one optical output signal – all managed by a communication network management system.
