The Kriegers Flak, a 600 MW offshore wind farm in the Danish Baltic Sea, consists of 2 sections, each with its own substation.
Kriegers Flak A, the west section, will have a total capacity of 200 MW. The east section, Kriegers Flak B, will have a total capacity of 400 MW.
The GBFs are planned to be installed offshore by the end of 2017, while the wind farm is expected to become operational by 2022.
