Partners Tout Offshore Wind Transmission Concept (Int'l. Report)
TenneT, EnBW and Orsted are reporting an alliance to implement a new concept for connecting offshore wind farms and converter platforms in the German North Sea --
Orsted's Borkum Riffgrund West 1 and Borkum Riffgrund 2 projects in Cluster 1 as well as the Northern Energy OWP West and EnBW He Dreiht wind farms in Cluster 7.
Traditionally, projects feature a transformer platform which is connected to the converter platform for the transmission of electricity ashore. The new concept would avoid the construction of offshore substations and eliminate the need for costly export cable.

Suction Bucket Offshore Wind Foundations Placed (Int'l Report)
Norwegian Geotechnical Institute
The Norwegian Geotechnical Institute (NGI) and GeoSea are reporting the installation of the first of the 20 suction bucket jackets at the Borkum Riffgrund 2 windfarm 54 kilometers off the coast of Lower Saxony, in the German North Sea. The foundations of all 20 wind turbines have been safely pumped into the seabed full commissioning of the wind farm is slated for early 2019.
In the installation of the 56 wind turbines, 20 will use the suction bucket technology as foundation and 36 will be supported using monopiles. The three-legged foundations measure more than 50 meters in height and weighing 950 tons each.
