Thor OHVS for RWE - 1060 MW

RWE will build the Thor wind farm off the Danish west coast - approximately 22 kilometres from Thorsminde on the west coast of Jutland. With a planned capacity of 1000 MW, Thor will be Denmark’s largest offshore wind farm to date. To connect the wind farm to the Danish grid, RWE will build two new substations – one at sea and one on land. The substation at sea is the nerve centre of the wind farm: the electricity produced by the individual wind turbines is collected here and transformed to transmission-level voltage. The green electricity will be transported through export cables to the new-build onshore substation Volder Søndervang, which is located close to the coastline and the adjacent grid connection point of the Danish grid operator, Energinet. A corresponding grid connection agreement has already been signed between RWE and Energinet in spring 2022. HSM Offshore Energy will supply engineering, procurement, construction, installation and commissioning of the offshore high voltage substation and it’s jacket foundation.
