Windtech International May June 2024 issue






On Thursday 4 May the transformer was installed in Offshore Windpark Q7.

This substation had arrived on 1 May in IJmuiden harbour on the Northwest coast of the Netherlands. It weighs over 500 tonnes, measures 10 by 20 metres and is 12.5 metres tall. At arrival in IJmuiden the colossus had been en route for two days from Aalborg in Denmark. This is the first transformer station to be installed at such a distance at sea. By now all 61 foundations and transition pieces of Q7 windpark have been installed and a start has been made with sea and land cabling. The production and installation of the wind turbines will be completed in September 2007.
