Kriegers Flak Export Cable Makes Landfall in Denmark

An export cable for the 600MW Kriegers Flak offshore wind farm made a successful landfall at Rødvig, Denmark, Energinet reports.

The cable pull-in operations were carried out with NKT’s cable laying vessel – NKT Victoria.

Energinet is constructing onshore and offshore infrastructure to connect Vattenfall’s Kriegers Flak wind farm in the Baltic Sea to the Danish grid.

The Kriegers Flak wind farm will be located approximately 15km east of the Danish coast in the southern part of the Baltic Sea, close to the boundaries of the exclusive offshore economic zones (EEZ) of Sweden, Germany and Denmark

The wind farm will be located a few kilometers from the German offshore wind farm Baltic 2. Energinet and German 50Hertz Transmission will connect the two wind farms, creating the world’s first offshore power grid which combines wind energy with the possibility of exchanging power between the two countries.

Kriegers Flak wind farm consists of two sections, each with its own substation.

The west section, KFA, will have a total capacity of 200MW. The east section, KFB, will have a total capacity of 400MW.

The KFB substation will also serve as the support for the KFE module which is part of the so called Combined Grid Solution project run by Energinet.dk and 50Hertz.

The installation of two gravity based foundations (GBFs) for the two offshore substations is expected to start this autumn, and the topsides are expected to be installed in spring 2018.
