ESBJERG / COPENHAGEN, Denmark – European Energy A/S has hired Semco Maritime to develop and optimize the electrical infrastructure for its nearshore wind farms in Jammerland Bay and Omø Syd, Denmark.
The scope of the study comprises optimization of the electrical infrastructure, hereunder electrical grid studies and evaluating several scenarios of how to bring the power from the wind turbines to the grid onshore. This includes assessment of the subsea cable layout and design as well as onshore/offshore substation topologies.
The engineering study started in July 2020 and is expected to be finalized this month.
According to European Energy, the 560-MW wind farms are expected to connect to the grid by 2023, power more than 500,000 homes, and lead to an annual reduction of more than 750,000 tons of CO2.
