The offshore transformer platform for the Nordergründe offshore wind farm has been installed by the heavy-lift crane vessel ‘Rambiz’.
The more than 2,000 tons transformer platform is now sitting on a monopile foundation at the wind farm.
Commissioning of the project had originally been planned for the end of the year 2016, but was set back by the insolvency proceedings of the platform manufacturer.
The 111MW Nordergründe wind farm is situated in water depths of 10 meters within the 12-nautical mile zone of the German North Sea and 15 km to the North-East of the island of Wangerooge. Grid connection is via individual connection by the grid operator Tennet.
