Energinet.dk Calls for Bids for Subsea Cable Route Survey

The Danish grid operator, Energinet.dk, has invited contractors to apply for a survey job related to Kriegers Flak’s subsea cable route.

As part of the Kriegers Flak (KF) Combined Grid Solution (CGS) Energinet.dk and Germany’s 50Hertz Transmission are preparing the installation of two parallel HVDC cables from the KFBE substation at the planned Kriegers Flak Wind Farm (DK) to the Baltic 2 substation at the Baltic 2 Wind Farm (DE).
