CG has been awarded a contract from Denmark’s national electricity transmission system operator Energinet.dk to provide power transformers and Gas Insulated Switchgear (GIS) for the Kriegers Flak wind farm project in the Baltic Sea.
The order consists of two onshore 500 MVA 410/235kV autotransformers (frame contract); four 220 MVA 32/225kV offshore platform substation transformers; and nine bays 220kV Gas Insulated Switchgear for the offshore platform substations. CG’s equipment will maintain the overall short-term and long-term security of electricity supply from the wind farm. Kriegers Flak is to be developed in close partnership with their regional neighbours Sweden and Germany. The planned 600MW offshore wind farm will act like a ‘Supergrid’, transmitting renewable energy through power grids to all three countries. It will be built in the waters between Møn, Denmark, southern Sweden and north Germany. transmitting renewable energy through power grids to all three countries. The wind farm is planned to go into operation sometime between 2018 and 2020.
