The Northwind wind farm will have an installed production capacity of 216MW. The connection between the Offshore High Voltage Substation (OHVS) and the onshore grid connection will be realised with a 220 kV submarine export cable.

Eventually, the Northwind wind farm will be connected to the future 165MW Belwind 2 wind farm, which is also situated in front of the Belgian coast. For this connection, a second 220 kV subsea cable with a length of approximately 10 km will be installed. CG’s scope in this project would be to design and supply the high voltage installation including all necessary measures to comply with ELIA (Belgian Transmission System Operator) grid connection requirements. This comprises mainly the Offshore High Voltage Substation (OHVS) and the onshore location including all auxiliary systems to ensure proper functioning of the HV installation. In addition to this engineering study for grid compliance and connection, CG will also provide the main transformer 225/33 kV 275 MVA and two reactors of 33 kV 65 MVAr for reactive power compensation. Energisation of the offshore substation is expected September 2013.
