DolWin2 goes live off Germany
ABB hands over offshore hub to connect Gode Wind, Nordsee 1
ABB has successfully commissioned and handed over the 916MW DolWin2 offshore wind grid hub in the German North Sea.
The engineering company completed the project for transmission operator TenneT, building on the BorWin1 and DolWin1 hubs already delivered.
“We are very pleased to have successfully commissioned and handed over DolWin2 and would like to thank TenneT for their continuing trust and cooperation,” said ABB.
DolWin2 features HVDC Light technology and includes a 320kV offshore convertor station some 45km into the North Sea.
It will provide a route to market for wind farms including Dong’s 5823MW Gode Wind 1&2 and Northland and Innogy’s 332MW Nordsee 1.
ABB project scope included the design, supply, installation and commissioning of the compact offshore and onshore converter stations as well as the subsea and underground cable systems.
