WIND ENERGY PRODUCTS AND SERVICES (ON- AND OFFSHORE)
Due to the transformation of the energy system in Europe wind energy is becoming a growing part of the energy mix transported via the Amprion-grid. Wind energy is transported to consumers through the extra-high-voltage-grid. Amprion is now set to become the project developer for the transport of energy from offshore windfarms in the North Sea. This is outlined in the nation Network Development Plan. The plans entail Amprion taking over the design, planning, construction an operation of all connectors to offshore windframs taht connect up to the grid connection point Hanekenfähr.Back
