Wind energy – Baltic Sea
The two entities will cooperate with regard to the construction, installation and commissioning of the project’s Offshore Substation (OSS).
The substation weighs approximately 2,900 tonnes and is one of the key elements of the wind farm, tasked with collecting and exporting the entire electricity produced by 50 wind turbines -estimated to provide around 1.9 TWh per year. It will connect to the onshore transmission grid in Lubmin.
Iberdrola has awarded contracts to the joint venture Iemants-Fabricom, responsible for the manufacturing of all structural elements of the substation, and to marine contractor Heerema, who will transport and install the substation on the Baltic Eagle site.
Siemens Gas and Power is responsible for the delivery of all main electrical equipment for Iberdrola`s low-voltage part of the OSS.
