CG's Innovative Offshore Technology to Power 370,000 Households

08th May 2014  To: 08th May 2014

Avantha Group Company CG won the contract from WPD offshore solutions GmbH, a leading developer of wind farms globally, to design, engineer and supply the offshore high voltage substation in 2011.
They have successfully performed the marine load-out of a high-voltage offshore substation, part of the German “Butendiek” offshore wind farm project for Western Power Distribution (WPD) offshore solutions GmbH.
CG is delivering and integrating all critical power equipment such as power transformers, high and medium voltage switchgear, and auxiliary reactors and transformers to connect the 33 kV and 155 kV networks of the Butendiek project.
CG’s connecting technology was chosen for this project due to its high reliability, superior performance and cost effectiveness. This solution includes an innovative AC/AC connection link for offshore wind farms developed by CG. The technology has already been deployed in other platforms in the North Sea, such as the Belwind and Northwind offshore wind farms. Its advantages include minimal weight and lower costs, and are designed for reduced but optimal maintenance compared with traditional high-voltage AC/DC solutions.
