France: Rentel NV is transporting its offshore transformer substation from the assembly yard in Saint-Nazaire, France to the Rentel wind farm concession in the North Sea.
This offshore transformer substation is the centrepiece of the wind farm. It weighs 1,100 tonnes and is designed to endure the extreme weather conditions in the North Sea, reports ScandOil.
The design, fabrication and installation of the offshore transformer substation are part of an EPCI-contract between Rentel NV and STX France.
The installation of the transformer substation is expected to be completed in spring 2018.
The Rentel wind farm is currently under construction. It will contain 42 wind turbines and provide green energy to 300.000 households annually.
