General – Connection Capacity DolWin 6
With the completion of the DolWin6 offshore grid connection, TenneT has made more than eight gigawatts of connection capacity available for wind energy in the German North Sea.
DolWin6, TenneT’s 13th German offshore grid connection, has now been offi-cially handed over to TenneT for regular operation after several weeks of successful trial operation by Siemens Energy.
This brings the transmission capacity in the German North Sea to 8,032 meg-awatts. In the Dutch North Sea, TenneT has now realised 3,500 megawatts of connection capacity, bringing the total offshore capacity to more than 11,500 megawatts.
