ABB has commissioned and handed over the DolWin2 offshore wind transmission link to the Dutch-German transmission system operator TenneT.
The high voltage direct current (HVDC) link includes a 320 kV converter station positioned on a platform about 45 km offshore. The station connects up to three offshore wind farms to the mainland power grid in Germany, according to ABB.
The 916 MW link has the capacity to supply more than a million households with renewable energy.
For the manufacturer, the 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.
