Green transition

The Danish offshore wind farm, Horns Rev 2, has a capacity of 209 MW. The renewable energy produced by the wind farm corresponds to the annual power consumption of 200.000 households in Denmark.

Services provided by ISC

ISC A/S has performed layout and detailed engineering for the offshore substation topside as well as for the four-legged jacket. For the accommodation platform ISC has assisted DONG Energy (now Ørsted) with layout and tender documents.

General description of the project

The platforms are located on a water depth of approximately 13 meters. The substation consists of a closed building housing the electrical equipment whereas the transformer is located on the outside behind an aluminum windscreen. The four-legged jacket has a traditional layout with X-bracings. The jacket extends 28.6 m above the seabed. The piles are driven 30 meters into the seabed and are located within the four legs.

Additional information

The substation is designed in 3D via the advanced CATIA CAD-system. Besides designing of the platform construction, CATIA is used to determine all sittings, from the high-voltage cables to the concrete foundation, where the submarine cables are lead from the underground to the platform, and where the space left for diverging of the high-voltage cables are very small.
