EDS HV Group has completed the onshore installation, termination and testing work of the platform cable on the EnBW Hohe See offshore wind project.
Carried out on behalf of the Chinese power cable manufacturer Zhongtian Technology Submarine Cable (ZTT), the scope of work covered pre-engineering, including cable routing and design of cable containment and support, and the installation of six 155kV cable circuits plus three shunt reactor neutral connections, as well as termination and subsequent testing.
ZTT won a contract by TenneT to supply and construct a 155kV HVAC grid connection between Hohe See and the 900MW BorWin3 DC grid connection system in 2017. At the beginning of this year, the China-based company chose EDS to complete cable termination and testing for the project.
EDS is expected to begin the further scope of termination and testing work offshore in the second quarter of 2019.
Located some 98km off the German coast, EnBW's 497MW Hohe See wind farm will feature 71 wind turbines.
The offshore wind project is scheduled for commissioning in 2019.
