Siemens has awarded a contract for the construction of three offshore transformer modules (OTM) to Smulders. The project, situated off the Aberdeenshire coast in the North Sea, will be developed by EDP Renewables, ENGIE and Diamond Generating Europe.

The OTMs will connect the wind farm with a capacity of 950 MW to the electricity grid in the UK.

Siemens will deliver the containerised high voltage equipment which will be mounted onto the platforms built by Smulders.

Key figures:
• Realisation: 2019-2021
• Capacity of the offshore wind farm: 950 MW
• Distance to the Scottish coast: 30 km from Aberdeenshire
• Production of green energy for +/- 1.000.000 households
