Offshore cables of the Combined Grid Solution – Kriegers Flak interconnector have been installed, 50Hertz, one of the developers of the project, informed.

50Hertz and Energinet plan to establish the Kriegers Flak – Combined Grid Solution (CGS) to connect the national grid to offshore wind farms in the Baltic Sea.

The construction of the CGS, with the capacity of 400MW, began in 2017, and the operations is planned to start in Q1 2019.

According to 50Hertz, both offshore cables, with the starting point on the German Baltic 2 platform, have been installed. As planned, the second 25 kilometer long submarine cable for the link has been laid on the Danish platform of the Kriegers Flak offshore wind farm.

Elke Kwapis, 50Hertz, project manager of the Combined Grid Solution – Kriegers Flak (CGS) said: “These are great news. In the business everybody knows how complex the installation of submarine cables can become; especially in this case we have pulled in the cables without any interruption of the operating platform (Baltic 2). Due to the very good cooperation with the Danish TSO Energinet as well as with our colleagues from the Regional Center North and the platform operator EnBW we have reached this important milestone.“
