Planning / Timeline

In August 2010 all wind turbines will be ready. The offshore high-voltage station will be towed to its location in the wind farm and installed there. The onshore network, including the booster-transformer high-voltage station, will also be ready by then. In September, all the cables are connected and tested. Between October and December the farm will be in a test phase. Towards the end of December the whole park will be operational.
