Mitsubishi Corporation will acquire power transmission cables and substations for an offshore wind farm in the UK. It plans to spend £180 million with the UK’s HICL Infrastructure Company Limited, the Nikkei Asian Review reported on 26 July.

The transmission cables and substations will span an area of 26km between the 258MW Burbo Bank Extension wind farm and the county of Denbighshire, in north-east Wales. The firms will operate it for 20 years.

Since 2011, Mitsubishi has acquired about 900km of offshore power transmission cables across four sites in Germany and four in the UK.
