Power and automation technology provider ABB has inaugurated a new high-voltage cable manufacturing facility in Huntersville, N.C.

The new plant supplies high-voltage and extra high-voltage transmission cables for both AC and DC applications, to carry power and renewable energy underground as part of the nation's new smart grid.

According to ABB, new AC and DC underground transmission lines will strengthen the North America energy infrastructure and enable power from remote renewable resources, including solar, to reach homes and businesses. ABB has invested approximately $90 million in the new operation, which now employs around 135 people.
