EnergoBit SA’s 30 MW Babadag III wind farm in Romania will transmit energy to the grid using 140 kilometres of Nexans SA’s high temperature conductor cables and accessories.

The existing Babadag – Tulcea Vest 110 kV power line does not have enough capacity to carry power from the solar plant, Nexans said. The high temperature ACSS/TW Brant conductors will double the line rating without adding mechanical loads, the company’s statement said. Upgrading the conductor along the 44 kilometre route allows the wind farm to operate with existing infrastructure, according to the press release.

With a capacity of 194 megavolt-amperes, the new power line is able to carry 63% more current than the existing system when operating at the same temperature. The ACSS conductors also allow for a 16% reduction in joule losses when operating at the same current as the existing ACSR system, the specifications say.

Babadag 3 is in Dobruja (Dobrogea), southeast Romania. The conductors will be manufactured at Nexans’ Benelux plant in Elouge, Belgium.
