DolWin Beta Becomes Resident of North Sea

DolWin beta, the offshore HVDC platform that will connect three offshore wind farms in the German part of the North Sea, is now anchored and ballasted to the seabed, Aibel has announced on its social media pages. 

The operation of moving the platform to its fixed position at sea started on Saturday evening at 6.30 p.m. It was completed on Monday morning at 5.20 a.m.

“Moving a platform the size of Dolwin Beta from the rig at the quay to a fixed position at the North Sea Hall is a complicated and demanding operation. Still, everything went according to plan,” Aibel commented on the job successfully done.

The platform will receive alternating current from wind farms, and convert it into direct current before sending it onshore via subsea cables.  It has separate living quarters for 24 people, a helipad and two lifting cranes.
