Bard Offshore 1 Wind Farm Remains Out of Operation

At the beginning of the year, there were frequent technical problems with the converter substation. In late March, a smoldering fire occurred on the substation and caused preliminary failure of the system. Recommissioning was planned for June, but is now postponed.

The Bard Offshore 1 wind farm was opened in August last year. It is the first commercial wind power plant on the high seas, around 100 kilometres off the German North Sea coast.
