NKT completes Nordergründe grid connection

Swedish company NKT has successfully commissioned and handed over the 155 kV high-voltage AC Nordergründe offshore wind transmission link to the Dutch-German transmission system operator TenneT.

The turnkey project for NKT included design, engineering, supply and installation of the 155 kV underground and offshore cable system, the onshore 155/220 kV power transformer, the onshore and offshore shunt reactors, and the extension of an existing 220 kV substation, reports Penn Energy.

Via this offshore grid connection, the Nordergründe wind farm will be able to bring 111 MW of renewable energy to the German mainland.
