Offshore wind farms make an important contribution to increasing the share of renewable energies in power generation. We are connecting wind farms in the Baltic Sea off the island of Rügen to our transmission grid as part of the Ostwind 1 project.
In the Baltic Sea, 50Hertz is implementing the additional submarine cable connection between the German and Danish power grids - the Combined Grid Solution/Kriegers Flak. It will be a interconnector linking two wind farms and via which electricity can be traded in both directions - from Denmark to Germany and from Germany to Denmark.
Furthermore, 50Hertz is planning the Hansa PowerBridge together with the transmission grid operator Svenska kraftnät - an additional connection between the transmission grids of Germany and Sweden through the Baltic Sea.
