Submarine Cable for Offshore-Interconnector installed
Milestone reached by linking the Danish and the German transmission grids
Rostock - Today, both offshore cables of the Combined Grid Solution – Kriegers Flak, the first interconnector linking the Danish and the German transmission grids in combination with the infrastructure of offshore wind farm grid connection, have been installed. As planned, the second 25 kilometre long submarine cable for the link has been laid on the Danish platform of the Kriegers Flak windpark. Starting point for the installation of both cables was the German platform Baltic 2.
Elke Kwapis (50Hertz), project manager of the Combined Grid Solution – Kriegers Flak (CGS): "These are great news. In the business everybody knows how complex the installation of submarine cables can become; especially in this case we have pulled in the cables without any interruption of the operating platform (Baltic 2). Due to the very good cooperation with the Danish TSO Energinet as well as with our colleagues from the Regional Center North and the platform operator EnBW we have reached this important milestone.“
