Global Tech I: Transformer Station ready for service

The transformer station of the first offshore wind farm initiated by Windreich, Global Tech I, was successfully installed on 9 May. Thus, electricity revenues, which will amount to more than EUR 300 Million annually once the farm is completed, are imminent. The component’s fourfold redundancy (4 transformers with a capacity of 120 MW each instead of a single one of 400 MW) ensures that in the event of the failure of one transformer, the other three can continue to transmit power under slight overload. The integrated helideck increases the availability of the helicopter for maintenance operations.

The floating and self-erecting transformer station is the centerpiece of the offshore wind farm Global Tech I. The component’s fourfold redundancy (4 transformers with a capacity of 120 MW each instead of a single one of 400 MW) ensures that in the event of the failure of one transformer, the other three can continue to transmit power under slight overload. Also, delivery times of replacement transformers are shortened dramatically since 120 MW transformers are more readily available. The integrated helideck increases the availability of the helicopter for maintenance operations.
