Dragados Offshore has been awarded a contract by DONG Energy for delivery of four substation jackets for its Hornsea Project One offshore wind farm.

The 1.2 gigawatt project consists of 174 wind turbines connected to three offshore collector substations and a reactive compensation substation, the latter one located between the offshore wind farm and shore.

The offshore collector substations transfer power from the incoming wind turbines’ medium voltage cables to high voltage, exporting it via the reactive compensation substation (RCS) onto the national grid. The purpose of the RCS is to compensate for the reactive power generated in the wind farm power system.

The scope of work awarded to Dragados Offshore is the procurement and fabrication of the jackets and piles of three offshore substations and a reactive compensation substation.

Dragados Offshore will initiate the project immediately, and delivery of the jackets is scheduled for early 2018, the company said in a press release.
