The gravity based foundations (GBFs) for the two substations were shipped to Køge Harbor on a barge in January, where they were waiting for the right weather for installation. The installation of each foundation lasted approximately 10 hours.

The topsides are expected to be installed this summer.

The two platforms have been placed some 8km apart since the wind farm is divided into two areas. Kriegers Flak A, the west section, will have a total capacity of 200MW. The east section, Kriegers Flak B, will have a total capacity of 400MW. The Kriegers Flak B substation will accommodate the connection between Kriegers Flak and the German offshore wind farm Baltic 2.

This is the first time that offshore wind farms are used to interconnect power supplies between two countries. The joint project between Germany and Denmark, supported by the EU, is being carried out by Danish Energinet and German 50Hertz.
