Lillgrund bei Malmoe, Schweden. 7. August 2008The Lillgrund wind farm is located in the Øresund between Malmö and Copenhagen. For this projectSiemens installed 48 2.3-93 wind turbines each rated at 2.3 megawatts (MW). The wind farm with a totalinstalled capacity of 110 MW is operated by the Swedish utility Vattenfall and officially went on line in June2008. It produces enough electricity to supply 60,000 Swedish households. The offshore substation platform(in the foreground) bundles the generated power and a 120-MVA power transformers transforms the 33kilovolts to a transmission voltage of 138 kilovolts so that the power generated by the wind farm can be fedinto the Swedish grid. Beside the transformer the platform also accommodated medium-voltage switchgearand an auxiliary power transformer for the substation.

The partners will look for offshore wind opportunities

The UK’s Offshore Renewable Energy (ORE) Catapult, the Glasgow-based innovation centre, has signed a collaboration agreement with the private sector-backed Energy Innovation Centre (EIC), to bring new technology to commercial reality in the offshore renewables sector.
