CG installs transformer substation at the Amrumbank West

India, Mumbai: CG has announced the installation of power transformer substation at the Amrumbank West offshore wind farm. The station is located 100 kilometres off the German coast in the North Sea.
The Amrumbank West offshore wind farm will enter service in the autumn of 2015, reports WindTech International. CG designed, engineered, supplied and integrated all critical high voltage power equipment, including power transformers, high and medium voltage switchgear as well as protection and automation equipment.

The substation will gather electricity generated from the 80 turbines, transform the voltage to 155 kV, and transmit it to the HelWin converter station. From here, the power will be transmitted to the electricity grid operated by Tennet TSO GmbH.  

The station is raised on a foundation anchored to the seabed, aside from a topside structure, with the transformers and electrical switching equipment.
