The foundations for the Kriegers Flak platforms have been shipped from Ostend in Belgium to Denmark. They are now in Køge habour, waiting for the crane ship required for the installation of the foundations offshore.
See a timelapse of how the enormous foundations were constructed at a barge in Ostend
A barge carrying two gravity based foundations (GBFs) for the offshore substations of the Danish 605MW Kriegers Flak offshore wind farm has left the port of Ostende, Belgium. One platform will be used for the Interconnector Combined Grid Solution.
In Oostende in Belgium the two foundations for the platforms at Kriegers Flak offshore wind farm have been assembled and are ready for shipping.

Video: How CombinedGridSolution will work
Energinet.dk and 50Hertz have awarded nkt cables the contract for the production and delivery of the submarine cables as part of the Kriegers Flak Combined Grid Solution.
50Hertz and Energinet.dk establish a 400 MW offshore interconnection
using offshore wind-park connections
By awarding the contract for a HVDC (high-voltage direct current) converter station in Bentwisch, Northern Germany, the transmission system operators 50Hertz and Energinet.dk make an important step towards establishing an interconnection between the national grids of Germany and Denmark. The “Kriegers Flak Combined Grid Solution” will be the world’s first offshore interconnection that is using the national grid connections to offshore wind-farms.
