SBI CONNECTORS has recently supplied high vol-tage connectors that will be installed in the substa-tion of the HORNSEA project in the United Kingdom. The connectors were supplied through the com-pany, GAELTEC Utilities Ltd.
When the HORNSEA project is completed, it will re-present the largest offshore wind farm in the world, comprising up to 240 turbines with a capacity of up to 1.2 GW. The site offers an unparalleled wind resource, good climatic conditions and favourable water depths (20-40m).
It will be located 120 km off the Yorkshire coast in an area covering approximately 407 km2. The pro-ject is wholly owned by DONG Energy UK, the world leader in the development and the construction of offshore wind power.
