BorWin1 Converter

The project name BorWin1, is derived from the 'Borkum Wind Park Cluster'. This is the first project which was carried out in DC technology and is the network connection for the BARD offshore 1. The connection from BARD platform to BorWin Alpha is 156kV 3 phase. The electricity produced by the wind turbine generators is converted to DC power and transported under the sea by HVDC tranmission and overland to the onshore converter station. To date this route is the world’s longest link constructed for connection of an offshore wind park to the land-side grid.
