According to TenneT, the installation was completed today, 11 October, around noon through a float-over process.

The fabrication of the topside for TenneT’s 900MW BorWin3 HVDC platform was completed at the end of August at Drydocks World – Dubai.

Shortly after, the structure began its journey from the United Arab Emirates to the installation site some 130km off the German coast, at which it arrived on 7 October.

The BorwWin3 grid connection is scheduled to be fully commissioned in 2019 when it will start to deliver the power generated by offshore wind farms to the German grid.
