CG to power offshore wind farm in the Baltic Sea

  Avantha Group Company CG has been awarded a contract from Denmark’s national electricity transmission system operator Energinet.dk to provide power transformers and Gas Insulated Switchgear (GIS) for the Kriegers Flak wind farm project in the Baltic Sea.
The order consists of two onshore 500 MVA 410/235kV autotransformers (frame contract); four 220 MVA 32/225kV offshore platform substation transformers; and nine bays 220kV Gas Insulated Switchgear for the offshore platform substations. CG’s equipment will maintain the overall short-term and long-term security of electricity supply from the wind farm.
Kriegers Flak will be Denmark’s largest offshore wind farm project and is to be developed in close partnership with their regional neighbours Sweden and Germany. The planned 600 MW offshore wind farm will act like a ‘Supergrid’, transmitting renewable energy through power grids to all three countries. It will be built in the waters between Møn, Denmark, southern Sweden and north Germany and its 130 wind turbines will produce around 2.1 TWh of electricity. 
The wind farm is planned to go into operation sometime between 2018 and 2020. It will help to more than double Denmark’s wind power energy capacity to 42 per cent and provide electricity to over 600,000 homes in the three countries.
CG was chosen on account of its economical & technical best evaluated bid. This is another successful track record in providing transformers and GIS to the offshore industry. The company’s proven technology is already being used in other offshore platforms such as Belwind, Anholt, Butendiek, Humber Gateway, Luchterduinen, Northwind, Amrumbank and Gemini.
Commenting on the order, Avantha Group Company CG’s CEO and Managing Director, Laurent Demortier said, “Our equipment will contribute to bringing renewable energy to European consumers, increasing the security of energy supply to Denmark, Sweden and Germany, and assisting these countries to further reduce their carbon emissions.
