Grid connection of onshore and offshore wind farms

Wind energy is one of the mainstays of renewable energy. The challenges lie in connecting the wind farm to the main grid — especially when they are offshore. Our many years of experience in transmission networks and distribution grids as well as in substation construction make us a reliable partner for connecting onshore and offshore wind farms — at all voltage levels.

Onshore wind farms

As a general contractor, we will take care of the configuration and set-up of the electro-technical infrastructure of onshore wind farms. This includes coordinating the grid connection with the energy provider, as well as the design, supply, installation and commissioning of the:

  • internal wind farm cabling,
  • transfer station (compact station),
  • substations including all components as well as
  • high-voltage overhead lines and cable systems including planning and routing on a turnkey basis.

Depending on customer requirements, we can take care of the maintenance of the electrical infrastructure, fault-clearing, overhauling and repairs.

Offshore wind farms

We have the required skills in transmitting offshore wind energy — from laying submarine cables to the construction of networks, stations and plants. We ensure that the power generated on a offshore wind farm reaches the substation on land, and is then fed into the transmission network from there.
