ABB will provide a system for IT infrastructure, OT1 security, plant-wide condition monitoring, SCADA2 and remote access services to facilitate stable power transmission to the German national grid.

The
DolWin5 (Epsilon) platform will facilitate the transfer of 900 MW of electricity from three connected offshore wind farms in the North Sea 100 km off the German coast to the onshore grid. In addition to an offshore converter platform, there is an onshore converter station located in Emden/Ost in Germany.

ABB received the order from Aibel Keppel consortium ANS5 in Norway. Aibel/Keppel FELS consortium has been tasked to design, construct, and build the High Voltage Direct Current transmission system. Initial operations for DolWin5 (Epsilon) are due to commence in 2024.
