66 kV Offshore Wind Agenda

Project requirements and technology developments for the implementation of 66kV arrays

14 - 16 November 2017, Bremen, Germany

  • Review testing procedures for higher voltage equipment to comply with certification
  • Identify key impacts on the offshore platform to reduce losse
  • Assess the confidence of the market by exploring the expected demand of 66kV technology
  • Evaluate the technology and cost impacts on transformers, cables and switchgears, to ensure projects bankability
  • Present research developments in HVDC for 66kV inter-array technology to boost wind farm performance


Coping with higher voltage cables during installation

Alex Gauntt, Business Development Manager at Siem Offshore Contractors GmbH gave a presentation about "Coping with higher voltage cables during installation" on last years 66kV Offshore Wind conference.

Have a look at his presentation and learn about:

  • Siem Offshore/Contractors overview
  • The Siem Approach
  • 66kV: Installation asset implications
  • 66kV: Impacts on ancillary equipment
  • 66kV: Burial & Pull-in challenges


Developing a 66 kV Infrastructure

The transition to 66 kV cables, transformers and switchgears has long been touted as a necessary step for the wind industry. In the space of a few short years progression has been very quick as the industry attempts to streamline every aspect of wind farm construction and energy production to realise reductions in the levelised cost of energy.
