Rentel SubstationStarting on January 12, the offshore transformer substation for the Rentel wind farm will leave the assembly yard of manufacturer STX France in Saint-Nazaire, France. Then, the offshore transformer substation will be installed in the Rentel wind farm concession in the North Sea, on a foundation placed in September 2017.

The bottom of the substation is placed around 20 meters above the sea level and rests on a 1,850 Tonne heavy foundation, which has been fixed 40 meters below the seabed. The offshore transformer substation consists of a large steel building with 4 deck levels and weights 1,100 Tonnes. The design, fabrication and installation of the offshore transformer substation are part of an EPCI-contract between Rentel NV and STX France. The installation of the offshore transformer substation is expected to be completed in Spring 2018. As from mid-2018, the Rentel wind farm will produce green energy for 300,000 households.
