What is the US equivalent of European 4x2.5 sq mm HO7RN-F and could US 10 2 be substituted for the European cable to hardwire a 240V 27A appliance?

If you want an American plug to power a 30A 220V device look at a dryer outlet. It will have an extra neutral conductor, but it is standard. Otherwise, you can go with a 220V 30A TwistLok plug. All the home centers [I've been to] carry these plugs. 10ga wire is heavy enough for 30A runs under 75ft, though for a 27A appliance you should consider a 40A breaker with 8ga wire.
