50Hertz Issues Geotechnical Survey Tender Call
- Grid Connection
German transmission system operator 50Hertz Offshore GmbH is seeking geotechnical survey services for a project in the German Baltic Sea.
50Hertz has issued a tender for a geotechnical investigation and an accompanying report for an offshore transformer platform.
The duration of the contract would be ten months, 50Hertz said. The value of the contract is undisclosed.
The minimum time frame during which the tenderer must maintain the tender is until 28 February 2020.
Interested parties have until 26 July to respond to the solicitation.
50Hertz is responsible for the construction and operation of offshore infrastructure which connects wind farms in the German Baltic Sea to the national grid.
To this end, the TSO builds and operates offshore substations, partly in cooperation with the wind farm operators, which convert wind energy to a higher voltage for onshore transport level. From there, the electricity is transported to the company’s onshore substations through our submarine cables.
