Coronavirus delays Kriegers Flak Combined Grid Solution
transmission system operator Energinet has revealed that the final steps
of the commissioning procedures for the Kriegers Flak Combined Grid Solution
system have been delayed. This has been attributed to ongoing movement
restrictions for the Swedish team members due to Corona-Pandemic.
Due to these special circumstances there will be some extra time needed.
That means that the interconnection is expected for launch end of September
2020. 50Hertz and Energinet are monitoring the situation very closely and
are making efforts to further use alternative ways to continue the individual
commissioning steps and make it possible for team members to work on site.
The CGS project aims to establish a new electricity connection between
Denmark and Germany via two wind farm projects, the German Baltic
2 and Danish
Grid connection of the CGS is expected to occur in May 2019. It is a joint
project between transmission system operators Energinet and 50Hertz.
The Danish Kriegers
farm project is located in the Baltic Sea and will consist of two parts.
Kriegers Flak A, the west section, will have a total capacity of 200MW.
The east section, Kriegers Flak B, will have a total capacity of 400MW.
It will feature 72 Siemens Gamesa SG
turbines which have a rotor diameter of 167m.
wind farm is located 32km North of the island of Ruegen. It covers an area
of 27km2 , and features 80 Siemens SWT-3.6-120
turbines with a total capacity of 288MW. The offshore wind farm annually
produces 1.2 billion kilowatt hours of electricity for computationally
