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.

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