The contract was awarded on behalf of the end client TenneT, the transmission system operator responsible for the grid connection for the 242 MW Gode Wind 3, which provides the grid connection as an HVDC line.

The EPIC main contract was awarded to Zhongtian Technology Submarine Cable Company (ZTT).

Gode Wind 3 is located in the German North Sea, approximately 32 kilometres northwest of the island of Norderney within cluster 3 and the country’s exclusive economic zone (EEZ).

In addition to Gode Wind 3, Ørsted, the developer of the project, is also building simultaneously the Borkum Riffgrund 3 in the German sector of the North Sea.

The wind farms will feature Siemens Gamesa’s 11 MW turbines, which will be the first time they are installed in Germany.

When it comes to DolWin Kappa, the offshore platform is the centrepiece of the 900 MW DolWin6 direct current link, which brings offshore wind power from the German North Sea to land.
