ABB has commissioned and handed over the DolWin2 offshore wind transmission link to the Dutch-German transmission system operator TenneT.

The 916MW link deploys ABB’s HVDC Light, Voltage Source Converter (VSC) based technology and includes a 320 kilovolt (kV) converter station positioned on a platform about 45 km offshore. The station connects up to three offshore wind farms to the mainland power grid in Germany. For ABB, the project scope included the design, supply, installation and commissioning of the compact offshore and onshore converter stations as well as the subsea and underground cable systems.
