50Hertz and wind farm operator Skyborn Renewables (Skyborn) seek to jointly implement the 927 MW Gennaker offshore wind project in the German Baltic Sea. The partners have awarded contracts to a Dutch-Belgian consortium for the development of the substations.
The consortium consists of the companies HSM Offshore Energy, Smulders and Iv-Offshore & Energy. They won the tender for the development of the platforms and the connected services. Together, they will be responsible for the planning, engineering, procurement of components, construction, offshore installation and commissioning of the substations and of the foundations. The work is to be carried out on yards in the Netherlands and in Belgium.
OWP Gennaker GmbH, a subsidiary of Skyborn, will realise the Gennaker wind farm around 15 kilometres north of the Fischland-Darß-Zingst peninsula. 50Hertz is responsible for the entire grid connection project called Grid Connection OST-6-1. The generated wind power will be collected on two offshore platforms and transported at the 220-kV extra-high-voltage level. Three submarine cable systems will be installed to transport the electricity to the mainland. The cable route up to the new substation to be built in the Sanitz/Gnewitz/Dettmannsdorf/Marlow survey area will be around 90 kilometres in length, of which 50 kilometres as a submarine cable on the seabed. The Grid Connection OST-6-1 project is currently being prepared for the planning approval procedure at the Ministry of Economics, Infrastructure, Tourism and Labour of Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania.
