July 2016

Nordsee One offshore wind farm celebrates a wedding: This is the construction term used for the process of marrying a substation platform to its foundation. With the offshore transformer substation, transformer and all associated electrical components now completed, the project, located approximately 40 km north of the island of Juist, is celebrating another milestone.

The three-day journey of the substation began in Aalborg, Denmark. Upon arrival a floating crane placed in July the heavyweight substation onto the 50-meter tall foundation. The 2,100 ton substation is the heaviest component of the offshore wind farm.
