DONG Energy has installed two offshore wind farm substations in Germany.
The platforms are located 33 kilometres from the islands of Juist and Norderney, north Germany.
The Gode Wind 1 and 2 offshore wind farm will have 97 turbines in total with a total capacity of 582MW. That’s enough energy to power 600,000 homes.
Trine Borum Bojsen, Managing Director of DONG Energy in Germany said: “This is an absolutely unique feature of this project. At all our previous wind farms, we have always only had one substation platform but the Gode Wind 1 and 2 wind farm is special in many respects: with 97 wind turbines, it will be Germany’s largest offshore wind farm. For this reason we had to install two platforms for the first time.”
The project is expected to start operating next year.
