Wind Energy – Grid Contract
Vattenfall has signed a contract with Siemens Energy and Aker Solutions AS to deliver grid connection infrastructure for the Norfolk Boreas Offshore Wind Farm off the British coast.
The contract gives Siemens Energy and Aker Solutions the responsibility for engineering, procurement, construction and installation of the High Voltage Direct Current (HVDC) onshore and offshore substations and connection to the National Grid.
HVDC technology offers one of the most efficient means of transmitting large amounts of power over long distances.
Located 47 kilometres off the Norfolk coast in south east Britain, with an installed capacity of 1.4GW, Norfolk Boreas is the first phase of Vattenfall’s Norfolk Offshore Wind Zone. It will deliver its first power in 2027.
