The Windreich Group - which comprises British Wind Energy GmbH and TenneT TSO GmbH - has signed an agreement for the production of a temporary grid connection for the Deutsche Bucht offshore wind farm.

Subsequently, the wind farm will be connected to the already commissioned grid connection - called BorWin2 - by TenneT to serve as a temporary solution for generating power until the originally intended wind farm grid connection, BorWin4, is completed.

While BorWin4 is still in the tendering phase, BorWin2 is already under construction and is expected to have a total capacity of 800 MW. After the BorWin4 grid connection is completed, the Deutsche Bucht wind farm will be connected to it, the companies explain.

In addition, the companies agreed to settle ongoing litigations. Under the new agreement, the Deutsche Bucht project secures a construction and commissioning date of 2015. The installation, commissioning and acceptance of the converter stations; cable conduction; and installation of the AC cable will continue to be managed by TenneT TSO.
