ABB K.K. Key Developments

Hitachi Ltd. and ABB Sign Joint Venture for HVDC in Japan

Hitachi Ltd. and ABB signed a formal contract to establish a joint venture company for high-voltage direct current (HVDC) transmission in Japan. Closure of the transaction is subject to customary regulatory approvals with the intention of establishing the joint venture in August. Hitachi will own 51% of the joint venture and ABB will own 49%. The new joint venture will be based in Tokyo and will provide ABB's latest technology to HVDC projects on which Hitachi is the prime contractor, taking full responsibility for all aspects of direct current (DC) systems from design to engineering and equipment supply as well as after-sales service. The intention is to contribute to wide-area electric power distribution networks in Japan by combining Hitachi's sales network, project management know-how, and quality assurance processes with HVDC technology and system integration capability from ABB. This strategic partnership between the two companies will contribute to the evolution of Japan's power network. Hitachi and ABB will explore further strengthening of the relationship and address opportunities to widen the scope for future collaboration. HVDC is a technology used mainly for transmitting electricity between two grid systems. The supply side power is converted from alternating current (AC) to direct current (DC) before being transmitted, and it is then converted back to AC in the receiving side system for use. The system is ideal for long-distance transmissions due to its ability to minimize electricity losses and to its lower space requirements and construction costs. It is also well suited for interconnections between two grids different frequencies.
