Grid connection of offshore wind farms, Germany
The offshore wind farms in the German North Sea are linked under various connection projects to the German EHV grid. Each connection project comprises an offshore platform with converter on the high seas with connection cables to the wind farms, HVDC cable links to the AC/DC converters on land employing voltage source converter (VSC) technology, and switchgear as well as operating and network control systems at sea and on land. Fichtner assists in technical handling and project management. For putting the projects into operation, Fichtner provides experts who are deployed in onshore substations and offshore converter platforms.
