DanTysk to deliver first green power to Germany

05 December 2014

A new milestone has been reached: the offshore wind power plant DanTysk will supply the German electricity network with its first green wind power from the North Sea. The 80 wind turbines are now successively in the commissioning phase for the production of electricity. DanTysk is then expected to be fully connected to the grid and to be delivering at full capacity by spring-time 2015. The wind farm will generate power equivalent to the consumption of up to 400,000 households.

DanTysk is located 70 kilometres west of the island of Sylt and is spread across an area of 70 square kilometres (7,000 football pitches) in the North Sea. The offshore substation, engineered, designed, delivered, installed, tested and commissioned by the Strukton Hollandia JointVenture, consists of three layers including a helideck, emergency sleeping quarters, generators, control systems (the station will be controlled from an onshore station) and two transformers.


The transformers are responsible for the transformation of the 33 kV coming from the wind turbines into the 155 kV required for the power transportation. The energy is subsequently transported to a transformer station and connected to the German grid of Vattenfall.

This message was based on an announcement by DanTysk Offshore Wind GmbH. DanTysk Offshore Wind GmbH is a joint venture of Vattenfall (51%) and Stadtwerke München (49%).
