A key development in linking the two offshore wind farms Nordsee Ost and Meerwind to the German mainland has been completed according to Siemens, which says it has installed the HelWin1 offshore platform in the North Sea.

“Installation of the platform for HelWin1 constitutes reaching a key milestone in our series of grid connection projects. The transmission capacity of our projects involves a total of 6.2 GW of electric power from renewable sources.” -- Lex Hartman, member of TenneT management board
