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

According to ABB, the new plant will supply 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.
