  ABB builds $ 30 million production unit in Swedish complex

28. June 2018 – ABB is investing more than $ 30 million in a new production unit under construction at its Ludvika, Sweden plant. The device is designed to increase production and expand the capacity and range of its high-voltage dry cans.

The market for high voltage feedthroughs, which are indispensable in electrical grids, is growing due to the increasing global demand for electricity and the increasing number of long haul electrical transmission lines that are used to transfer energy from renewable sources and require higher voltages.

Feedthroughs are hollow cone shaped, mostly ceramic components that conduct electrical conductors safely through partitions such as walls or tanks and insulate the conductor and its electric field from it. The insulation of the electrical conductor and other safety factors become more important as the voltages increase. While bushings typically use oil as an insulating material, the "dry" bushings made in the new factory will use epoxy instead, making them safer and more environmentally friendly.

Construction of the production unit within the company complex in Ludvika, one of ABB's largest production areas. This allows the materials to be tested and assembled under production, safety and efficiency standards.
