ABB to power "superhighway" bringing electricity to millions in India

ABB has energised the 1st phase of a new electric link to send clean energy from NE India all the way to a substation in Agra, over 1700km away, supplying power for 90m Indian citizens. It's the world's first multi-terminal UHVDC (ultra-high voltage direct current) link, allowing power to be sent across vast distances to where it's needed most, with minimal losses and reduced need for pylons.
