TenneT is the transmission system operator responsible for the grid connection of Gode Wind 3 (242 MW) and provides the grid connection of the HVDC line. The AC connection entails a converter platform from the wind farm to the sea. the main contract for EPIC (Engineering, Procurement, Installation and Commissioning of Submarine Cables) was awarded to our company CTT Submarine Cables Ltd. Gode Wind 3 is located in the German North Sea, approximately 32 km northwest of the island of Norderney, in Group 3 and in the country’s exclusive economic zone (EEZ). The offshore wind farm is expected to be fully operational in 2024 and, when fully operational, will provide clean, green energy to around 250,000 German households.
Sam Dowey, Managing Director of Correll, commented, “It is very satisfying to have been awarded Asso.subsea’s second export cable access contract and we very much look forward to continuing to develop our partnership with them on future projects.
“This contract complements the previous contract awarded by ZTT Cables where Correll was responsible for the platform cable routing, termination and testing of the 155kV subsea cable associated with the AC grid connection system for the Kaskasi II and Gode Wind 3 offshore wind farms.
