The current would be the same for all points in a series circuit. All the current must flow through all of the resistances (which can vary), because it is connected in "series". Voltage will drop from point a to point b, but the current will remain the same.

Conduits and busways will always be involved in a 240V 200A industrial circuit. We certainly wouldn't use NM cable, and rubber-insulated aluminum is just one type of wire. The use of conduits and busways would be the "norm" here.
