AREVA and Keppel Verolme construct German offshore wind substation

AREVA’s Transmission and Distribution (T&D) division and Dutch consortium partner Keppel Verolme B.V. will build an offshore wind substation in German waters.
The €62 million contract for an Offshore High Voltage Substation (OHVS) project was placed by Wetfeet Offshore Windenergy GmbH, a German wind energy project development company.

The turnkey offshore wind substation project involves the supply and installation of a self-floating, self-installing 155/33 kV OHVS to connect Wetfeet Offshore’s Global Tech 1, 400 MW offshore wind farm, located in the German Exclusive Economic Zone in the North Sea, to the offshore High Voltage Direct Current (HVDC) grid.

The OHVS platform will serve as a logistics service base during installation and operation of the offshore wind farm, and will be equipped with boat landings, a helicopter deck and accommodations for up to 37 people, AREVA says.
