VBMS has been awarded a contract by nkt cables for the installation of approximately 50 km of 150 kV AC high-voltage submarine cables for the Kriegers Flak Combined Grid Solution (Kriegers Flak CGS). The project, owned by Energinet.dk and 50Hertz, will connect the future Danish offshore wind farm Kriegers Flak and the German offshore wind farm Baltic 2, both located in the Baltic Sea.
The project will be carried out in Q2, 2018. The Kriegers Flak and Baltic 2 windfarms are located less than 25 km apart and will be connected via the two submarine cables delivered by nkt cables. This will secure transfer of energy of around 400 MW between the Danish island Zealand and the German federal state Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania.
