SUGAR LAND, TX--(Marketwire - Apr 25, 2011) - Written by John Egan for Industrial Info Resources (Sugar Land, Texas) -- ABB Limited (NYSE:ABB) (Zurich, Switzerland) broke ground on its first high-voltage transmission cable manufacturing facility in the U.S. earlier this month. When the $90 million factory is operating in late 2012, it will be able to produce hundreds of miles of high-voltage and extra-high-voltage electric transmission cable per year. Most of the cable that will be manufactured at the site in Huntersville, North Carolina, will be direct current (DC), but some alternating current (AC) cable will be made as well. The cable, which will be smart-grid compliant, can be used in underground or undersea transmission projects.
