In the village of Dörpen, Northern Germany, a new substation will be constructed. Power, generated by the offshore wind parks north of Germany, will be put into the German power network via this new transformer station.
Important equipment for the new substation are the transformers. Last week, the first set of 2 transformers of 360 tons each was loaded at the factory in Bad Honnef. Via various rivers and channels, with a break in Northern part of the Netherlands, the giants will be transported by barge to Northern Germany. In the next coming days, an extraordinary operation will take place there. To enable transshipment of the transformers from barge, a temporary quay will be constructed, approx. 10 kilometers from the final destination. Here, a roll-off operation will take place. After that, the last part of the route by road will be finalized.
