Alstom hands over offshore substation for Trianel

The Borkum wind farm consists of 80 wind turbines situated on 56 kilometres-squared, north of the Borkum coast.

The wind farm has a generation capacity of 400MW – enough to supply almost 200,000 households with power.

Alstom’s offshore wind power substation platform connects the turbines to the onshore power grid at the connection point.

Wolfgang Voss, member of the board for Alstom Deutschland, said, ‘Alstom is proud to make another important contribution to implementing the energy turnaround with our project teams in Germany.

‘In addition to this successful installation at Borkum wind park, the installation of the Global Tech 1 offshore substation is imminent and the offshore substation platforms for the Baltic 2 and Meerwind wind farms are currently available in the form of a steel bodyshell. This is impressive evidence of our leading position in this field.’
